GENERALLY USED TALISMARC FIELDS & WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE IN MARC21.


This is a basic introduction to selected MARC21 fields, arranged to give a flavour of the differences between MARC21 and UKMARC. The changes which have arisen in the adaptation from UKMARC to MARC21 are:

  1. changes to field numbers
  2. changes to sub-fields
  3. addition of punctuation


The fields listed below have largely remained the same as they were in UKMARC, with the exception of the 500 field (this field now amalgamates a whole spectrum of previous notes fields) & 504 field (the 500 field is now used where there is only an index present). One of the major changes in MARC21 is the absence of the 248 field (the rumours are true!), which was used for multi-part items. This is now catered for within the 245 field, but this issue is quite complex, and will not be dealt with at this general introductory session, but will be dealt with in the training sessions.


The symbol assigned by Talis to replace the * (asterisk), which is used to indicate the existence of a sub-field, is the ‡ (double dagger).


Key to abbreviations in this manual:

(NR) = (sub)/field is not repeatable

(R) = (sub)/field is repeatable

l = indicator

# = used to indicate a blank space within the indicators

^ = used to indicate a space within a field


100: personal name (NR)

1st I:

0 – forename: the name is a forename or is a name consisting of words, initials, letters, etc.

1 – surname: the name is a single or multiple surname

3 - family name: the name represents a family, clan, dynasty, house, or other such group

2nd I: #

Subfield codes:

a – surname, followed by forename, or forename only (NR)

c - titles associated with a name (R)
