Definition and scope:

The 800-830 fields contain a name/title or a title used as a series added entry when the series statement is contained in field 490 (Series Statement) or field 500 (General Note) and a series added entry is required for the bibliographic record.  No 8XX series added entry field is used in conjunction with a series statement in the 400-440 fields because each of these fields functions both as part of the bibliographic description and as a series added entry.

The roman numeral and the word Series: that precede a series added entry field in some displays are not carried in the MARC record.  They may be generated based on the field tag.

The 800-830 fields may be used in records for all Formats except Archival and manuscripts control.
