This release includes an important update to DCM Z1 instruction sheet  046 , Special Coded Dates.  LC/NACO catalogers: please note that the formatting of dates in the 046 field has changed. When supplying dates in field 046 , use the Extended Date Time Format (EDTF) schema in all cases except for centuries; supply dates using the pattern yyyy, yyyy-mm, or yyyy-mm-dd; always add subfield $2 edtf except after a century . The more consistent use of $2 edtf is based on a PCCLIST discussion suggestion to simplify the use of $2 (always use except for centuries). Examples: 046 ## $f 1884-10-11$g 1962-11-07 $2 edtf 046 ## $s -0199~ $2 edtf
