MARC 21 Concise Bibliographic: Series Added Entry Fields (80X-830)

Fields 800-830 contain a name/title or a title used as a series added entry when the series statement is contained in field 490 (Series Statement) or field 500 (General Note) and a series added entry is required for the bibliographic record. No 8XX series added entry field is used in conjunction with a series statement in the 440 field because it functions both as part of the bibliographic description and as a series added entry.

The roman numeral and the word Series: that precede a series added entry field in some displays are not carried in the MARC record. They may be generated based on the field tag.

A name portion containing open-ended date ends with a space when it is followed by other data in the same subfield; it does not end with a space when it is followed by another subfield.
