question about 022 field Beth Cox 25 May 2006 15:49 UTC

I have noticed a number of OCLC records recently where, after the ISSN in
the 022 field, there is a $2 with either a letter or number, usually a z, 1
or 2.  Bib Formats does not indicate a subfield 2.  Does anyone know what
this field is and what the letters/numbers mean?

Thank you very much!

Curiously yours,

Beth Cox
