Appendix D errata

Page history last edited by krtaylor459@gmail.com 4 years, 11 months ago


  • Rule numbering and titles taken from DCRM(B) first printing 
  • Module code in parentheses before rule number indicates location of original text to be changed; module code after description of needed change indicates that the change has been made in that module; module code after plus "n/a" means change has been verified as not applicable to that module
  • Because subsequent printings are based on an entirely new text supplied by BSC but Cataloger's Desktop is updated manually, there is occasionally a discrepancy between print and online that is to be noted and CD to be given the correction
  • Additions to text are shown underlined; deletions are shown struck through
  • Codes:
    • {B, B1}, B2, B3, B4 = Books, first through fourth printings; "not done" indicates that the intended change was inadvertently not made 
    • C = Cartographic
    • G = Graphics
    • M = Music
    • MSS = Manuscripts
    • S = Serials
    • CD = Cataloger's Desktop


Minimal-level records


D1. Introduction 

  1. (B)(S) Libraries most often turn to minimal-level cataloging for rare materials in response to a need to create item-level records for large backlogs of uncataloged materials with the least amount of time and effort possible to create accession records for new acquisitions, to provide access to low-priority unprocessed collections in backlogs, and for item-level access to digital images.(G)(B3)(C)(M)(MSS has: "Libraries and archives may turn to minimal-level description for individual manuscripts to provide some item-level access with the least amount of time and effort possible.")


D3.2. Optionally, add any additional elements...  

  1. (B) 2nd bullet: "the required notes called for in DCRM(B) (rules 2C2, 4A2.2, etc. a complete list of required notes may be found in the Index under 'Required notes')" (S)(G)(M)(B3)(C: deleted the parenthetical addition altogether since we will not have an index)(M)(MSS n/a)
  2. (B) 6th bullet: "optional notes recording any numbers associated withborne by the material ..." (C)(G)(numbers are required in DCRM(M))(MSS n/a)
