246 coding

246 1st indicator

0 Note, no added entry
1 Note, added entry
2 No note, no title added entry
3 No note, added entry

Note refers to a system generated note such as "other title" and "spine title".

We use 3.
Although it says "no note" Voyager actually does generate the note "Other title".
3 is most compatible with other systems in Libraries Australia. This is why we use it.

Below is an eg of indicator 1 Note added entry

246 1  #  $i Title on dust jacket: $a Platypus
