Appendix G errata

Page history last edited by krtaylor459@gmail.com 4 years, 10 months ago

Key:

  • 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

The letter wwas not part of the standard Latin alphabet. A printer’s choice for the u graph letterform in preference to the v graph letterform (or the i to the j) depended on its placement in a word and was governed by convention ... While there were variant graphs letterforms for lowercase letters, in the pre-modern distribution there was only one graph letterform for each of these letters used as capitals...

Likewise, an uppercase U in the source usually signals that as are u and v are functioning as separate letters, requiring no special consideration of UVu, or v while converting case in text with that typeface.
