Labelled Display

The Labelled Display presents authority record information (including headings, tracings and notes) with textual labels. The LCCN Permalink for the record is also present.

View the MARC Display to see all of the data elements with field tags and content designation specified by the MARC 21 format, a communications standard that enables exchange of authority, bibliographic, holdings, and other data among electronic systems. More information about the format of MARC 21 authority records can be found in the MARC 21 Format for Authority Data.
