Just curious. I thought the 852 summary of holdings tag was now pretty 
universal. I haven't heard of anyone's using the 949 tag for this 
purpose since the days of the Geac library automation system (GLIS, not 
Advance), in the 1980s and early 90s, which as far as I know introduced 
this practice. I thought that the 9xx tags were originally intended for 
multi-lingual support. But I haven't had much to do with this stuff in a 
while. I would be interested, as a sort of historical footnote, to know.
