LC Guidelines:  670  Source Data Found

NACO:

As of January 2006, catalogers may supply a subfield $u in 670s of Name/series authority records following the guidelines in Descriptive Cataloging Manual Z1, supplement to the MARC 21 Format for Authority Data.  These guidelines suggest that a cataloger should use judgement in supplying URIs because, 1) URIs are subject to rapid change thus incurring an increased need for maintenance and 2) URIs are unnecessary when a well-crafted 670 note provides enough information to identify the 1XX and references.

Do not use subfields:  $6, $8

Do not use subfield (implementation decision not yet made):  $w
