Examples of holdings records

Below are some examples of electronic holdings records from OCLC's Connexion Browser environment, which implements both the Z39.71 and MFHD standards.

These records build upon the examples shown in previous sections of the Primer in that they take the theoretical principles discussed, then implement them in actual records. Note, however, that these records are specific to one system and one environment; the same records may appear quite differently in a different system or environment (e.g., an ILS, or DOCLINE), although the underlying data is exactly the same.
