Jeff and Martin,

 

the main problem is that there is no general support ( for URIs in MARC
(in $0 and elsewhere). Some fields (like 856 Electronic Location and
Access) recognize $u for that purpose.

 

A discussion paper was submitted to MARBI and discussed at ALA Midwinter
(2010-DP02: Encoding URIs for controlled values in MARC records;
http://www.loc.gov/marc/marbi/2010/2010-dp02.html), but was pretty much
shot down by the committee, mainly because MARC lacks a consistent
identifier strategy; e.g., there is no easy way of dealing with the
relationship(s) between the identifier (URI) and identified subfield
value, etc.

 

An additional problem that came up was that the paper didn't take
MARCXML into consideration, even when it is treated only as a
serialization of MARC 21 (as it is done today).

 

Michael

I'm considering/testing $0 in the 1XX fields, analogues to $0 in the bib
record. The idea is that a DbPedia/Freebase/VIAF URI could authorise an
authority record. "Global headings change" becomes a fun challenge with
LD URIs within the record :)
