MARC21-007: Reformatting quality of electronic resource
Electronic resource is of a quality that will support current, electronic access to the original item (reference use), but is not sufficient to serve as a preservation copy.
Examples of electronic resources created for access purposes may include images created for a temporary, online exhibition (possibly to mirror an in-house installation); compressed, lower resolution versions of higher-quality master files that allow for easier transmission and access over the Internet; video converted to MPEG-2 for Internet access; photos which have been scanned at lower resolutions to create an online browsing tool for a collection; or articles scanned as a part of an E-Reserve collection which will be discarded in accordance with previous copyright agreements which specify a time limit on the retention of the electronic resource.
