This article gives examples of standard ways that notes are worded in Hamnet records. Keep in mind that notes employ natural language, and as such, the wording will vary as needed to convey the information clearly and concisely. More technical information for catalogers is available at MARC 500 General Note.

This page will be built gradually as different kinds of notes are encountered in the course of cataloging.
