4.3. Appendix C: 007 Tag

The 007 fields should always be included in records for electronic media (i.e. DVDs, e-books). Most electronic resources will only have one 007. However, Playaways have two, one for the Electronic resource and one for the Sound recording. Bib records with both a DVD and a Blu-Ray that circulate together (see Different Format/Material Types) should also have two 007 tags  one for each.

Below, you will find a copy-and-paste-able 007 for each material type. Explanations of each position in the field are provided. Letters in red should be checked, as they can change from resource to resource.

MARC 007 Field Physical Characteristics Wizard

The MARC 007 Field Physical Characteristics Wizard enables catalogers to interact with a database wizard that leads the user step-by-step through the MARC 007 field positions. The wizard displays the significance of the current position and provides dropdown lists of possible values for the various components of the MARC 007 field in a more user-friendly way.

To Access the MARC 007 Field Physical Characteristics Wizard for a Record that Does Not Already Contain the 007 Field (i.e. Creating the 007 Field from Scratch):

  1. Within the bibliographic record that needs to be edited, select Actions for this Record.
  2. Click MARC Edit.
  3. Make sure that the Flat-Text Editor checkbox is not selected and that you are not using the Flat-Text Editor interface.
  4. Right-click in the MARC field column.

    5. Click Add/Replace 007. The 007 row will appear in the record.

    6. Right-click in the 007 text box field.

    7. Click Physical Characteristics Wizard.

The MARC 007 Field Physical Characteristics Wizard will open.

Using the Physical Characteristics Wizard:

As the user navigates through the wizard, each position will display its corresponding label that describes the significance of that position. Each position contains a selection of dropdown choices that list the possible values for that particular position. When the user makes a selection from the dropdown options, the value for that position will also change.

The first value defines the Category of Material. Users select the Category of Material for the given record by choosing an option from the Category of Material? dropdown menu. The choices within the remaining character positions will be appropriate for the Category of Material selected.

Once the Category of Material is selected, click Next.

Evergreen will display the pipe symbol (vertical bar) for each position that represents a potential value for the selected Category of Material and will skip obsolete values.

By clicking either the Previous or Next buttons, the user may step forward and backward, as needed, through the various positions in the 007 field.

As a visual reference, the position that the wizard is displaying will appear in bold font. That way, users know which position they are working on at any given point within the wizard.

Once the user enters all of the applicable values for the 007 field and is ready to exit the wizard, click OK.

All of the values selected will be stored and displayed within the 007 field of the bibliographic record.

Continue editing the MARC record, as needed. Once the user is finished editing the record, click Save Record.


To Access the MARC 007 Field Physical Characteristics Wizard for a Record that Already Contains the 007 Field (i.e. Edit an Existing 007 Field):

  1. Within the bibliographic record that needs to be edited, select Actions for this Record.
  2. Click MARC Edit.
  3. Right-click in the 007 textbox field.
  4. Click Physical Characteristics Wizard.

     5. Click the Previous and Next buttons to navigate forward and backward through the various positions. The current position that the wizard is on will be indicated by bold font.

     6. Each position will display a label that describes the significance of that position. For the position that needs to be edited, choose its appropriate value from the dropdown options.


    7. Once all edits of the 007 field are made, click OK.

    8. After finishing all other edits to the MARC record, click Save Record.

NOTE: If the user edits an existing 007 field that does not already account for the skipped positions, then Evergreen will not automatically generate where the skipped positions should be in the 007 field. It is recommended that users delete the existing 007 field and start with a new 007 field, to ensure that Evergreen appropriately accounts for the obsolete positions for the Category of Material selected.
