This subfield is used to enter the code indicated the institutional creator of the catalog record. We use OCLC codes for this. MH-H for standard Houghton  and MH-HT for the Theatre Collection.

 

$$c Transcribing agency (NR)

This subfield is used to enter the institutional creator transcribing the record into machine-readable format. For us, we are more the original cataloging agency and the transcribing agency, so repeat either MH-H or MH-HT here.

This subfield is used to enter MARC code of title of the descriptive rules used to create the record. Here we enter dacs.
