Suppression Code Standardization (3/03)

1. Certain codes must be used in the same way by all libraries for suppression of bibliographic records. Local sites should use the labels below for suppression codes for their internal code lists (DB Prep minutes: 8-2-91, 6-5-92).


BCODE3 Bibliographic records
ICODE2 Item records
CODE4 Order records
SCODE2 Checkin records
   
Code Meaning Label

Z Display in the local OPAC, do not contribute to central DISLOC/NOCENT
S Do not display in local OPAC, do not contribute to central SUPLOC/NOCENT
r Do not display in local OPAC, contribute and display in central SUP LOC/DIS CENT
g (Bcode 3 only) Display local, Display at central with text "OhioLINK resource" DIS LOC/OL RES
o (Bcode 3 only) Suppress local display, Display at central with text "OhioLINK resource" SUPLOC/OL RES


Use of code "L--Display in local OPAC, contribute but do not display in central OPAC," and code "N--Do not display in local or central OPAC, contribute to both," is being phased out. They should not be added to new records.
