This volume is a supplement to AACR2, similar in scope to Descriptive Cataloging of Rare Books, allowing creation of item-level MARC catalog records for pre-modern manuscript materials in library online public access catalogs as well as in the national bibliographic utilities OCLC or RLIN. The rules that are described define the categories of information that an online manuscript description should contain and how these records should be implemented according to AACR2 and MARC environment.
