- colon at the end when subfield b follows

- slash at the end when subfield c follows

Subfield b - dot at the end when there is no following subfield

Subfield c - dot at the end

Field 260 and 264

Subfield a - dot at the end when there is no following subfield

- colon at the end when subfield b follows

- comma at the end when subfield c follows

b - dot at the end when there is no following subfield

c - dot at the end

Field 300

Subfield a - dot at the end when there is no following subfield

- colon at the end when subfield b follows

- semicolon at the end when subfield c follows

Subfield b - dot at the end when there is no following subfield
