Example Heading string in a bibliographic record: 650 2 $aEthics, Medical$xlegislation changed to: 650 2 $aEthics, Medical 655 7 $aLegislation$2mesh
The program does not uniformly separate out all form headings -- just certain ones. Currently the National Library of Medicine uses this faceted approach in LocatorPlus but combines all headings and subheadings into one string in their bibliographic utilities. Libraries have the option to either separate these strings out into topical (650), geographic (651) and form (655), or leave the string as is in their bibliographic records.
Backstage now has the ability to offer you an option. If you would prefer to keep the following form subheadings as a $v in your bibliographic string instead of having them split into a 655 field, please contact your Project Manager and we will make the change in your program for all records sent to us in the future. Unfortunately, there is no error proof automated process that will change records back if they have already been faceted out to tag 655. If there are any $v forms that you feel should be splitting to a 655 and are not, please contact us.
