Citation Scheme Source Codes
Citation Scheme Source Code Usage in MARC


Citation Scheme Sources contains a list of schemes for formulating citations to bibliographic items and assigns a code to each. The purpose of this list is to identify the source of the scheme used to construct a preferred citation expressed in a bibliographic record. For code assignment, general structure, usage, and maintenance guidelines see Source Codes for Vocabularies, Rules, and Schemes.

Arrangement of the List

Entries in the list are arranged in alphabetical order by the code and consist of the source code followed by the bibliographic citation for the source documentation. The citations are linked to the online source for some codes.

Code Structure

Each code consists of a maximum of 12 lowercase alphabetic characters. Possible additions to codes are described in Source Codes.
