Information on the Repeatable 260 Field
The Library of Congress has announced its plans for implementing the repeatability of the MARC 21 260 field. The Library of Congress and Program for Cooperative Cataloging plan to implement the changes on September 1, 2009. Guidelines for the repeatable 260 field (to account for publication data that changes over time) are now available.
