MARC 21 Concise Bibliographic: Note Fields (Part 1: 50X-53X)

Fields 500-53X contain notes relating to aspects of bibliographic items that are not specific to any particular type of material or control (e.g., archival control). Specialized note fields are used when access to the data is needed and/or the note is introduced by a distinctive word or phrase. Field 500 is used for all other note information.
