Brackets that customarily enclose a uniform title are not carried in the MARC record. They may be system generated as a display constant associated with the field tag.
In 1993, the first indicator was redefined from indicating whether the uniform title is printed on a card (and, for music, whether an added entry is to be made) to indicate for all forms of material whether the uniform title is to be printed or displayed. Consequently, first indicator values 0 and 1 were redefined.
Date of signing of a treaty was not separately subfield coded prior to the definition of subfield $d.
In 2014, subfield $g was made repeatable.
Prior to 1979, subfield $n carried only serial, opus, or thematic catalog numbers that occur with music items, and both the number and name of a part were included in one subfield $p. Subfield $p (Part) was redefined to include only the name of a named part/section and subfield $n was expanded to include the number of any numbered part/section.
