There should be a small icon to the right of the leader or control 
fields (00X) that, if clicked, will help you fill out those fields. If 
you click in the 005 field, normally it should be filled automatically 
with the current date and time.

Also, if you click on the question mark, it should bring you to that 
field's documentation on https://loc.gov/marc/bibliographic/ If you're 
not familiar with cataloging, I recommend reading up on the different 

Lastly, although I really REALLY don't recommend this for the leader or 
control fields 005 and 008, you can remove the mandatory flag by going 
in the MARC frameworks (Administration > MARC bibliographic frameworks > 
(find framework) > Actions > MARC structure > (find field) > Actions > 
Edit tag / Edit subfields > uncheck Mandatory > Save)

I hope this helps,
