In Technical Bulletin 261 "OCLC-MARC Format Update 2012"
OCLC strongly recommended not using the new Bibliographic field 264
until guidelines for its use were made available. The message below
from the Program for Cooperative Cataloging announces that the document
"PCC Guidelines for the 264 Field" is now available. As a result, OCLC
users may now begin to use field 264 according to these guidelines and
with the cautions noted in the PCC message. Thanks for your patience.
Please excuse any duplication of this announcement.

Subject: PCC guidelines for coding MARC 21 264 field
PCC guidelines for coding MARC 21 264 field are available from:
http://www.loc.gov/aba/pcc/documents/264-Guidelines.doc The guidelines
were developed with the help of staff from the Library of Congress
Policy and Standards Division and other stakeholders.
It should be noted that these guidelines do not address the application
of the 264 field for materials cataloged under the standards for
Descriptive Cataloging of Rare Materials (DCRM) or other standards for
specialized materials. The communities working on the application of RDA
for specialized materials will need to develop appropriate guidelines
for using the 264 field with those materials.
If there are questions or comments about this document, please send them
