Scope notes for selected terms
- bookseller MARC: Use for a person or organization who makes books and other bibliographic materials available for purchase. Interest in the materials is primarily lucrative. Folger practice: prefer over publisher for pre-1831 books, except when "publisher" or equivalent is used. Do not use in art cataloging
- printer MARC: Use for a person or organization who prints texts, whether from type or plates.
- publisher MARC: Use for a person or organization that makes printed matter, often text, but also printed music, artwork, etc. available to the public. Folger practice: prefer bookseller for pre-1831 books, except when "published" or equivalent is used. In art cataloging, use for publisher, distributor, etc. even in the case of a printer or printseller functioning as a publisher
