17.1. Never Ever Edit the MARC in Bib Record TCN-1!

The Bib Record with ID TCN-1 is reserved for all precats. This MARC Record should never be edited.

If it is edited, terrible Consequences will occur: every precat in the system will take on those characteristics. The last time this happened, we ended up with 21,824 copies in the SPARK Library System that had been edited with the "new" title.

The record should always look like this-


<record xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.l
oc.gov/MARC21/slim http://www.loc.gov/standards/marcxml/schema/MARC21slim.xsd"; xmlns="http://www.loc.gov/MARC21/
