Source: LC MARC 21 format for 264 - Production, Publication, Distribution, Manufacture, and Copyright Notice (R)

The 264 fields takes the information found in the 260 field (publication, distribution, etc. (Imprint)) and separates it into functions:
     ° production: inscription, fabrication, construction, etc., of a resource in an unpublished form.
     ° publication: publication, release, or issuing of a resource.
     ° distribution: distribution, distributor(s), and date(s) of distribution of a resource in a published form.
     ° manufacture: printing, duplicating, casting, etc., of a resource in a published form.
     ° copyright date: date associated with a claim of protection under copyright or a similar regime.
The 264 field corresponds to RDA 2.7-2.11 (production, publication, distribution, and manufacture statements and copyright date).

Input conventions for spacing:
     ° No spaces are used between letters of initials, including adjacent initials in personal names.
     ° One space is used between two or more distinct initialisms (or sets of initials), acronyms, or abbreviations appearing in juxtaposition.

Bracketing information: According to D1.2.1, "when adjacent elements within one area are to be enclosed in square brackets, enclose each in its own set of square brackets."

From 264 field PCC Guidelines:
Order of 264 fields: Give the fields for each function of entity statement recorded (2nd indicator value) together and in chronological order from earliest to latest (ordered by 1st indicator value).
     ° Record copyright notice date as the last 264 field.
Subfield ‡c: When multiple statements for different functions are being recorded, date may be recorded once for each function.
     ° ‡c may appear in one and only one 264 with 2nd indicator 0, one and only one 264 with 2nd indicator 1, etc.
Ending punctuation: Except for the copyright notice date, 264 fields follow the same punctuation practices as 260 fields.
     ° A 264 for a copyright notice date does not have ending punctuation.
