066 script codes

Discover which 066 script codes are supported in Connexion client.

OCLC supports script codes for all scripts in 066 fields. Some scripts will have more than one code depending on the Unicode character group to which they belong. Script identification codes are based on ISO 15924 Code Lists.

If you want to search for any of these codes, you can use the Character Sets Present index using either of the following labels: vp:

* This gives the list of codes that identify the script used. It appears in the 066 $c and the 880 $6. The codes are from ISO
15924 Code List
.

** MARC-8 code is the code OCLC uses to identify the original MARC-8 characters for this script. If only original MARC-8
characters are present then only the MARC-8 code will be present. Any characters for these scripts beyond the original MARC-8 use the four-letter Unicode character. See the MARC-8 Code Tables for details.
