MARC field 583 in the bibliographic and holdings formats contains information about processing, reference, and preservation actions. Reference actions may include a brief statement about solicitation to acquire material, whether the solicitation is active or inactive, and the date of the last item of correspondence. Preservation actions may include a review of condition, queuing for preservation, and completion of preservation. Field 583 is repeatable to record information about different actions.
