Holdings or bibliographic changes order form

This form is used to order bibliographic records in the Australian National Bibliographic Database (ANBD) that have your holdings attached where:

  1. The holdings have been changed; or
  2. The bibliographic records have been changed.

All fields on the form except "Special Instructions" must be completed.

Some products are run automatically and are available the same day. Others are more complicated and may take up to 5 days (this always applies if you fill out any special instructions). If you wish to discuss your product needs with a staff member please contact Libraries Australia Helpdesk.

Material types
You can check “All types” or one or more of the material types listed on the form.


a Language material This code is also used for microforms of language material.
m Computer file This code indicates that the content of the record is for the following classes of electronic resources: computer software (including programs, games, fonts), numeric data, computer-oriented multimedia, online systems or services. For these classes of materials, if there is a significant aspect that causes it to fall into another Leader/06 category, the code for that significant aspect is used instead of code m (e.g., vector data that is cartographic is not coded as numeric but cartographic). Other classes of electronic resources are coded for their most significant aspect (e.g., language material, graphic, cartographic material, sound, music, moving image). In case of doubt or if the most significant aspect cannot be determined, consider the item a computer file.
o Kit The described item contains a mixture of components from two or more types of items, no one of which is the predominant constituent of the kit.
t Manuscript language material
f Manuscript map This code is also used for microforms of manuscript maps.
