Location of cataloging instructions

Cataloging instructions for the grant will presumably be continued as normal cataloging for Sh.Col.'s. Should the cataloging instructions be put here, or as separate article? Or as a sub-page of "Shakespeare collection"? This takes us to the question of how to structure cataloging pages --Deborah J. Leslie (talk) 14:48, 25 August 2014 (EDT)

How about starting with a bullet list of special considerations under "Cataloging" in the Shakespeare collection article -- maybe by MARC field, with links to the MARC articles? That could be spun off into its own article later (an article largely made up of transcluded text from general cataloging articles). The lede would be something like "Records for Shakespeare's Works generally have enhanced description and access compared with non-Shakespeare material from the same period." The first bullet point could be "Pre-1701 English editions have a separate Hamnet record for each copy."--Erin Blake (talk) 15:07, 23 September 2015 (EST)
