Tag Tables

Tag tables are rolled out with each new version of Voyager. Some releases have no changes in the tag tables and we are able to use the old tag tables with the new release. When the new tag tables provided with the new release are substantially different then we need to copy our changes over into the new version of the tag tables. Systems usually aids in identifying how different the new files are from the old files. Tag tables are usually "frozen" (Updates completed and handed to Systems) about a month before the upgrade date.

We usually make customizations to the Tag tables provided by Voyager.

          We make Tag Tables provided by vendor more up to date
          We include certain obsolete tags and subfields
          We add fields and subfields we use locally that aren't included in MARC
          We create customized templates for 006 and 007 fields

Changes can be made in two places depending on the nature of the change.

         Adding a field requires changing the appropriate MARC file and the Master file
         Changing or adding subfields requires changing the MARC file

Please document all changes in the file header and on the wiki so we can keep track of customizations.
