Date Defined in Table:   This attribute indicates the calendar date upon which an entry for an LC work unit is added to the LC_UNIT table. This date will be system generated at the time that the entry is added.
Date Unit Closed:   This attribute indicates the calendar date upon which an LC work unit was or will be closed. If the unit is active and no planned closing date has been recorded, this date is set to null (00000000). If this attribute contains a date that is later than the current system date (e.g., system date = 19980228 and Date Unit Closed = 19991221), the unit is an active LC work unit.

Data Source:  The data in this table was derived/extracted from Table T17 of the Remedy Software application that generates the Library of Congress telephone directory. Table T17 is a SYBASE table that is currently (4/3/98) located on RS/6000 machine RS7 (alias: "lcweb"). The Remedy data view used in the extraction process was View T96. For more information on Table T17 and View T96, click here.

Note that only entries in Table T17 that had LC office symbols were extracted and loaded into LC_UNIT. This was done to eliminate T17 entries that, while included in the LC Telephone Directory, do not represent formal LC work units. Examples of such entries include:  the ILS Project, the Madison Snack Bar, and the LC Bicentennial Program.
