Hi Charlton,

Thanks for your attention and observation. Field 008 has been 
generated by the MarcEdit tool. Should it be substituted with 260$c 
using the same tool? I did look up the LoC site to have a better 
understanding of the field 008. It says character position 07-10 as Date1. 
Could you please let me know as to what does 'Date1' refer to?
