Used for all electronic resources (i.e., programs, data files, etc.) which usually consist of digitized machine-readable data or program code intended to be accessed, processed, or executed by computer.
When field 007/00 contains code c, it contains special coded information about the physical characteristics of an electronic resource.

Whether the item is one color or multicolored.
Dimensions of the medium used to encode the electronic resource.
Whether the production of sound is an integral part of an electronic resource.
Exact bit depth of the scanned image(s) that comprise the electronic resource, or a three-character alphabetic code which indicates that the exact bit depth cannot be recorded. Since only exact bit depth is useful, coding should not include missing digits represented by hyphens (-).
Whether the file(s) which comprise the electronic resource are of the same format or type for digitally reformatted materials.
Whether quality assurance targets have been included appropriately at the time of reformatting/creation of the electronic resource.
Information about the source of a digital file important to the creation, use and management of digitally reformatted materials.
Kind of compression the electronic resource has been subjected to.
Reformatting quality of the electronic resource; an overall assessment of the physical quality of the electronic resource in relation to its intended use. It can be used to judge the level of quality of a file, and an institution's commitment to maintain its availability over time.
Electronic resource is of a quality that will support current, electronic access to the original item (reference use), but is not sufficient to serve as a preservation copy.
Electronic resource was created via reformatting to help preserve the original item.
Electronic resource is of very high quality and, when printed out, viewed on screen or played via a listening device could serve as a replacement should the original be lost, damaged, or destroyed.
