RDA - Production Publication Distribution Manufacture Date - MARC 264

MARC field 264 (formerly known as the publication, distribution, field in AACR2) is the home for many different RDA elements.  MARC field 264 will replace field 260 so that each of the different types can be coded explicitly. We will talk about the following areas:
Production statement (2.7)Publication statement (2.8)Distribution statement (2.9)Manufacture statement (2.10)Copyright date (2.11) [Source: Library of Congress]

EDTF Date - 046 - RDA Cataloging Examples

RDA Cataloging Examples of use of Extended Date Time Format (EDTF) in MARC 21 field 046 for Special Coded Dates in Resource Description and Access (RDA) Name Authority Records
DCM Z1 046 update in Cataloger's Desktop 2015 Issue 3 release

Cataloger's Desktop 2015 Issue 3 was released on August 11, 2015. 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).
