MARC Codes

The relator codes listed below have recently been approved for use in MARC 21 records. The new codes will be added to the online MARC Codes Lists for Relators, Sources, Description Conventions. The codes should not be used in exchange records until after August 29, 2004. This 60-day waiting period is required to provide MARC 21 implementers with time to include newly defined codes in any validation tables they may apply to the MARC fields where these codes are used.

MARC Relator Codes Additions:

  • anm - Animator (subfield $e and $4 in name access fields)
  • lgd - Lighting designer (subfield $e and $4 in name access fields)
