Omit hyphens and spaces when recording International Standard Recording Number or Universal Product Code.
Record manufacturer numbers usually appear on the disc and on the container. Record sets may also include a set number in addition to individual record numbers; record set numbers in this case.

In the subfield $a, copy the number exactly as it appears on the label, retain alphabetic prefixes, suffixes, dashes, spaces, etc. The subfield $b includes the manufacturer's name as it would appear in the 260 $b.
