Standard Identifier Source Code Usage in MARC and MODS/MADS

Introduction

Standard Identifier Sources lists standard number or code systems and assigns a code to each database or publication that defines or contains the identifiers. The purpose of these source codes is to enable the type of standard numbers or codes in metadata records to be indicated by a code. For code assignment, general structure, usage, and maintenance guidelines see Source Codes for Vocabularies, Rules, and Schemes.

Arrangement of the List

Entries in the list are arranged in alphabetical order by the code and consist of the source code followed by the bibliographic citation for the source documentation. The citations are linked to the online source for some codes.

Code Structure

Each code consists of a maximum of 25 characters, including lowercase alphabetic characters, numeric characters 0 through 9, and the hyphen (-). Possible additions to codes are described in Source Codes.
