 +__PLP Standard normalization__
 +
 +PLP normalization occurs at the subfield level. Therefore, except as noted elsewhere, tags and indicators are ignored.
 +
 +The MARC subfield delimiter and the subfield that follows it are replaced by a single blank space.
 +
 +If the corresponding crosscheck option is selected, MARC-8 encoded data is converted to UTF-8.
 +
 +Subscripts, superscripts, and a number of diacritics are normalized as described in Appendix A of this document: \\
 + [[http://www.loc.gov/catdir/pcc/naco/normrule.html]]
 +
 +All remaining data is shifted to uppercase.
 +
 +The following characters are deleted: single quote, apostrophe, right and left brackets, vertical bar.
 +
 +All punctuation characters--except for the pound sign, ampersand, and plus sign--are replaced with a blank space.
 +
 +Double blank spaces are replaced with single blank spaces.
 +
 +Leading and trailing blanks are deleted.
 +
 +If the field being normalized is not a title, and it begins with 'THE ', 'AN ', or 'A ', the article and following blank space are deleted.
