ǂa - Publications about described materials note (NR) ǂz - International Standard Book Number (R) ǂ3 - Materials specified (NR)

Policy and formulation

  • Use 581 for citations to and descriptions of scholarly publications about the Folger copies of material described (while the note can be used for a general reading list, that's not something we want to be in the business of maintaining).
  • Include an introductory phrase followed by a colon as necessary when using first indicator "8" ("No display constant generated")
  • Follow the Chicago Manual of Style format for bibliographies, i.e., the style guide used in Folger publications. Short version: invert the name of the first author, and separate the main elements with periods, not commas.
  • For informal electronic publications like Folgerpedia and The Collation, make a MARC 856 Electronic Location and Access note instead.
  • For published engravings of paintings, make a general note instead.
  • Field 581 ends with a period unless another mark of punctuation is present.
