878 Item Information-Indexes (R)

Field definition and scope

This field contains item information about indexes that are not separately cataloged in the holdings of the reporting organization. A display may be generated from the contents of field 878 and its related 852 (Location), 855/865 (Captions and Pattern/Enumeration and Chronology), or 868 (Textual Holdings) field to which it is linked by subfield ‡8 (Field link and sequence number) or related by subfield ‡3 (Materials specified).

A general description of the four types of holdings data fields, their relationship to each other, and their repeatability is given in the 853-878 Holdings Data-General Information section.

Guidelines for applying the content designators defined for field 876 and input conventions are given in the 876-878 Item Information-General Information section.
