Early Notice Records (ENRs) may be identified by the Encoding level fixed field Leader/17 o (i.e., lowercase letter "o").  Some ENRs may not have any cross references, or may have an incomplete 670 field.  Although the records are incomplete, the headings themselves should be considered valid and available for use.

NACO members should not create ENRs.  They are created by LC during training and as part of projects.  When a NACO participant encounters an ENR that is more than several months old, he should notify the Coop Team liaison.
