Choose a mat type letter designation that is not officially used so items correctly cataloged will not be affected.

Subject: distinguish dvd from vhs in media icons in webopac?
Hello. We've seen some libraries are able to have two different media
icons in their webopac for DVDs versus VHS videos. But we've been told
that the icons are tied to the material type field, which is tied to an
officially defined MARC fixed-field tag which doesn't distinguish
different kinds of videos.
So how is this being done?
Does the solution involve the catalogers having to break official MARC
rules, or manually add an extra value somewhere to all records or
something like that? We really want to do this, but the catalogers
really don't want the solution to create extra work for them on a
Any advice, examples, tips, etc. would be greatly appreciated!
