Field definition and scope:

Field 830 contains a series added entry consisting of a series title alone.  It is used when the added entry form of a series title is different from that in the corresponding series statement.  An 830 field is usually justified by a series statement (field 490) or a general note (field 500) relating to the series.

For reproductions, an 830 field may be justified by a series statement in subfield $f of field 533 (Reproduction Note).

The National level record requirement for this field is Mandatory if applicable.

Field 830 is repeatable.

Guidelines for applying content designators:

The content designators identify the subelements occurring in uniform or conventional title, title page title, or series title headings that are not entered under a name in a name/title heading and that are constructed according to the generally accepted cataloging and thesaurus-building rules [e.g., Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules (AACR 2), Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH)].

A uniform title heading is used to bring together bibliographic entries for a work when various issues have appeared under different titles and to provide identification for a work when the title by which it is known differs from the title proper of a particular issue or when different publications have identical titles.

A uniform title entered under a name is contained in field 240 or in subfield $t (Title of a work) in the field appropriate for the author's name (X00 Personal Names, X10 Corporate Names, X11 Meeting Names).

Uniform titles used in phrase subject headings (e.g., Bible in atheism) are contained in field 650 (Subject Added Entry - Topical Term).

For indicator and subfield code definitions and examples, National-level (NLR) and Minimal-level (MLR) record requirements, and designator repeatability, see table below:

Content designator history:

Subfield $d - Date of treaty signing  [new]:  The date of signing of a treaty was not separately subfield coded prior to the definition of subfield $d in 1980.

Subfield $g - Miscellaneous information  [changed, 2014]:  In 2014, subfield $g was made repeatable.

Subfields  $n - Number of part/section of a work  [new]

$p - Name of part/section of a work  [redefined]

In 1979, subfield $n was defined for numbered parts/sections and subfield $p (Part) was redefined to include only named parts/sections.  Prior to that change, both the number and the name of a part were contained in one $p subfield.
