Correction of Typographical Error in new MARC source sode MARC Code Lists for Relators, Sources, Description Conventions:

In a September 30, 2009 Technical Notice on codes newly assigned to the MARC Code Lists for Relators, Sources, Description Conventions, a typographical error was made in the listing for the code for PlaceNames Online: South Australian State Gazetteer (Government of South Australia, Department for Transport, Energy and Infrastructure)

The code should be
