Bulk/inclusive date

Hello everyone!

My question was: "Could you explain to me what an inclusive date is, as opposed to a bulk date?
They are both mentioned in MARC 21, a cataloging reference format."

Thank you very much

    This is very specialized terminology, I would think. Do you have any more context you can give us? Do you only see the two phrases "inclusive date" and "bulk date"? Are they both under a particular heading?

    Are you talking about the Library of Congress MARC 21 format? It seems to cover several types of record structures. Which one are you talking about?

    Yes, JamesM, this is the Library of Congress MARC 21. I don't have any context other than the following:

    245 - TITLE STATEMENT (NR)
    ---Indicators
    -----First - Title added entry
    ------0 - No added entry
    ------1 - Added entry
    -----Second - Nonfiling characters
    ------0-9 - Number of nonfiling characters
    ---Subfield Codes
    -----$a - Title (NR)
    -----$b - Remainder of title (NR)
    -----$c - Statement of responsibility, etc. (NR)
    -----$f - Inclusive dates (NR)
    -----$g - Bulk dates (NR)
    -----$h - Medium (NR)
    -----$k - Form (R)
    -----$n - Number of part/section of a work (R)
    -----$p - Name of part/section of a work (R)
    -----$s - Version (NR)
    -----$6 - Linkage (NR)
    -----$8 - Field link and sequence number (R)

    which is not very helpful. I appreciate your help.
