775 Field Quick Reference Sheet  (pdf)

With RDA, much of the information about related editions we used to record in notes should now go into the 775 field.  This is a linking field which will help create the vital pathways between works, expressions, and manifestations in our next-generation bibliographic systems.

UCSD policy:
Use the 775 field with the appropriate relationship designator from RDA Appendix J to describe reproductions and revised editions where the title has changed.  Otherwise, use catalogers’ judgment in deciding to provide information about other works, expressions, etc.  When using a 775 field, a 5xx note is not necessary.

Other categories where 775 fields could be useful (see RDA Appendix J for the relevant relationship designator):

  • Sound recording reissues
  • Facsimiles
  • Manuscript vs. published editions
  • Frequency editions
  • Language editions (For translations use 765 or 767)
  • Adaptations, abridgements, etc.

Use caution, however. Not all WEMI relationships will be recorded in a 775 field. See the MARC21 Format for Bibliographic Data 76X-78X Linking Entries section for more guidance on which MARC fields to use.
