MARC Bibliographic Validation Rules

CLICK THE BLUE PATH LINK TO RUN THE REPORT: Custom > ~Profile Reference Tables > MARC Bibliographic Validation Rules

Displays the system level MARC validation rules for bibliographic records. This report can be used for initial troubleshooting when errors are encountered saving MARC records.

The + to the left of each tag can be clicked to view subfield and indicator information. Not all tags support subfields. If clicking on the + doesn’t expand anything, that tag may not have any subfields.

CLC can add local fields and subfields to the validation table, open a HelpDesk ticket with details of what you would like added. Some non-local tags can only be added by Innovative. You can submit requests for those through Idealab. Newly adopted tags by the Library of Congress are periodically added during system upgrades. Look for MARC technical notes in the What’s New documentation for more details.
