Examples of 655 fields

Connexion:  655 _7  Dissertations, Academic ‡x UCSD ‡x Biology. ‡2 local MilCat:  655 _7  Dissertations, Academic|xUCSD|xBiology.|2local 

NLM Genre both in Connexion and MilCat:  655 _ 2 Academic Dissertations.

Obsolete practice:  If a dissertation crossed disciplines (see example), the cataloger added a 690 for each discipline.  A 690 was also added for the academic department or program.

Degree in Anthropology and Cognitive Science was given 2 headings: 

690   Dissertations, Academic|xUCSD|xAnthropology 690   Dissertations, Academic|xUCSD|xCognitive science

Historical note:  All 690 field tags for UCSD dissertation and theses were switch to 655 field tags August/September 2010.
