Manuscripts Working Group

 


 

Charge

To develop rules or guidelines for item-level description and cataloging of modern (post-1600) manuscript material. These rules may be adapted from AMREMM, APPM, AACR2, and/or DACS and are to provide specific, technical instruction for preparing full MARC 21 descriptions. They are to be self-sufficient as far as possible, with reference to other codes (such as AACR2 for the formulation of headings) only as necessary. The rules/guidelines should follow the principles of Descriptive Cataloging of Rare Materials (DCRM), as established and codified in DCRM(B).

 

The Working Group should endeavor to make the rules acceptable to as wide a constituency as possible without unduly sacrificing internal coherence or consistency.

 

The Working Group should also make recommendations for a future set of rules for describing and cataloging manuscripts. Possibilities include: 1) a full revision of AMREMM that incorporates rules for modern manuscripts; 2) a two-component DCRM module for manuscripts (one component that has the same scope as the current AMREMM and a second component that picks up where AMREMM leaves off and covers modern manuscripts).

Appendixes

 

Appendix A. MARC 21 Descriptive Conventions Code (Work on this with MARC codes in hand)

 

Appendix B. Collection-Level Records (No general use of this Appendix is made for manuscripts. For instructions on creating collection-level records, see DACS)

 

Appendix C. Core-Level Records (Appendix C is now Capitalization)

 

Appendix D. Minimal-Level Records (See link to "Appendix D, December 2012" above)

 

Appendix E. Variations Requiring a New Record (No general use of this Appendix is made for manuscripts)

 

Appendix F. Title Access Points

 

Appendix F Title Access Points, Version 3 (Reconcile these two Appendix F pages with more recent versions above; "Version 8" is likely our most recent version)

 

Appendix G. Early Letter Forms and Symbols (Keep Appendix G basically without revision, but emphasize that it focuses on typeface but is still useful; also, refer out to a bibliography of written letter forms, such as Cappelli, Yeandle, websites, etc.)

 

Appendix H. Individual and Special Issues of Serials. (No general use of this Appendix is made for manuscripts - IS THIS APPENDIX EVEN REQUIRED, OR CAN WE JUST DELETE IT?) According to the Editorial Guidelines, we can "reassign" appendices from H onward--MFN

 

Appendix H. Companion Standards (Instead of just having a list, provide more explanation and guidance of when to use different standards; annotated bibliography; model off of DACS, including revised version) See Appendix J, April 2013 version

 

Appendix J. Crosswalks (crosswalk our rules to: AMREMM and DACS - look at DACS crosswalk and compare)

 

Appendix K. AMREMM or DCRM(MSS)? (PROPOSED APPENDIX; alternatively, provide these guidelines as an extended discussion within Appendix H. Companion Standards)
