Section 3.1 :
MARC Bibliographic Record Common Fields

Below is a view of the MARC record as you would see it in Voyager with an explanation of the content of the common fields you may encounter. OCLC has a slightly different format. Line numbers and content of fields will be relative depending on what information is present and what type of record you have – monograph, serial, computer file, etc. X in a field means the information in that area may vary. There are two examples at the end of this document.

OCLC Fixed field sample:

Note: the fixed field area is easier to read on an OCLC MARC record than in Voyager. It is reproduced below just as an example. This is the fixed field from a monograph record, other formats are different.

OCLC: XXXXXXXX Rec stat: X

In our Voyager records the OCLC number in the left corner is moved to an 035 field. And Voyager has some other record information not in this record.
