    Every change in one of the predefined fields - /[bib_library]/tab/tab_fix - of a Bibliographic catalog record will be recorded. The system will be configured to keep track of up to 16 fields.
    The following information will be recorded, per each changed field (which is a tracked field according to the predefined list), and be searchable:
    - The changed field tag
    - The field's original information (including all subfields)
    - The cataloging ID of the staff that cataloged the original information (before the change)
    - The update date of the original information (before the change).
    The history information that is recorded in the tracking table (Z00T) will be viewable using in the Cataloging GUI, using a new 'Record History' window: Main menu -> 'Edit Actions' -> 'View Record History' menu item.
