Thanks Nicole.  I think I've still got something wrong.  Our framework
didn't have a 008 field so I created one.  Now when I'm editing a record I
have the "..." next to the field and when I click on it I am able to enter
the 3-character language code in 35-37.  But whenever I try to search by
Language I am getting "No Results found."

On a side note, we were wondering if our patrons would have to use the
3-character code when searching in the OPAC.  We want them to be able to
enter "French" for example.  Would that work?

Thank you,
