Input Conventions

When records from CERL members are ingested into the CT they may not have sources in separate fields (such as 290 and 291). Examples for such a case are found in the ESTC records, where reference works and short titles of works, in which the name of a 2XX is occuring, are all filed in the same field. In this case the CT record will have all this information mapped to field 290.


There is currently no mapping of this field's content to RDF.
