AFRINUL will utilize symbols from the USMARC Code List for Organizations in order to identify holding institutions or microform sources. The Code List is a key to codes for holding institutions represented in the Library of Congress National Union Catalog (NUC) and other union list publications which until recently contained holdings for many reporting institutions. 

In certain cases, AFRINUL will deviate from the standard codes for convenience or will assign a code to an institution that does not currently have a USMARC code.  These institutions are indicated below in [brackets].
