4.2. Appendix B: Using GMDs

GMDs should not be used except where noted in the NC Cardinal MARC Templates document and in these best practices (see below). The use of new icons will be used in lieu of non-standard GMDs. Use the 33X fields to provide information from RDA controlled vocabularies as a replacement for standard GMDs. Use the 300 tag to include any information that you would place in the GMD if it is non-standard.


For incoming records with customized GMDs: move the 245$h from the incoming record and add to a 300 tag.
