The following code has been recently approved for use in MARC 21 records as
a geographic area code for field 043. The Coral Sea Islands were declared a
territory of Australia in 1969. Scattered over 1 million square kilometers of
ocean, they are basically uninhabited. The new code will appear in the next
edition of the MARC Code List for Geographic Areas.
