MARC standards: code list for countries

"The MARC Code List for Countries contains a list of places and their associated two- or three-character lowercase alphabetic codes. The list includes individual codes for presently existing national entities, states of the United States, provinces and territories of Canada, divisions of the United Kingdom, and internationally recognized dependencies. The purpose of this list is to allow the designation of the place associated with an item by codes in the MARC record for that item."
