Definition
Shelving is a parent element for two subelements: locator (with a "type" attribute) and note. The "shelving" elements concern the unique identifier for the item itself, such as a shelving location, accession number, or call number. Do not confuse with "localBibID", which identifies the record, rather than the item. Do not confuse with "classification", which is associated with the intellectual work (and which classifies it, often according to subject), rather than the particular physical item. Do not confuse with "identifier".
Usage Note
This number can be used by either people or the system to track an item's movements (inventory, loans), and actions taken on it (condition evaluations, etc.).
