|Cataloging Practices Manual||[CPM-560]|
Copy specific notes are used when a particular copy of an item varies from other copies of the same title. Typical examples include defects such as a missing title page or pages bound upside down. Copy specific notes are also used to describe changes after publication such as an author's inscription.
See also Limited Edition Notes.
Prior to July 2003, most copy specific notes were coded into 590 or 866 fields. If encountered do not change existing 590 and 866 fields.
Code copy specific notes for non rarebook material into 852 $z if the item in hand is a single volume monograph. Use 866 $z if the item in hand is part of a multivolume set or serial.

If the note pertains specifically to all holdings, code the note in 866 $z so that the note displays next to the volume holdings in the OPAC. This procedure started in March 2006.
