    Passing along a comment from one of NLM’s rare books catalogers: “I agree with the proposal.”

  2. Kathy Glennan says:

    I also agree.

  3. Armin Siedlecki says:

    I agree. This is a very helpful revision.

  4. Robert Bratton says:

    I consulted with my colleagues who catalog rare books, and they agree with the proposal.

  5. Jennifer A. Liss says:

    I support the proposal.

  6. Diane Napert says:

    I like the consolidating of the two nearly identical sections 3.21.2.9 and 3.21.2.11
    I think the new examples are helpful

  7. Robert L. Maxwell says:

    I agree with deleting 3.21.2.9 and distributing its contents elsewhere.

    I do not agree with labeling the examples as applying to early printed resources. Possibly the example in 3.13.1.3 would only be applicable to an early printed resource, but I don’t see the need to label it as such. And I disagree with labeling “Within single border …” in 3.21.3.3 as applying to an early printed resource. Such a note could be used on any resource. Similarly, “The first and last leaves blank” in 3.21.2.11 example might be unusual in something other than a description of an early printed resource, but I don’t think it would be unheard of and certainly shouldn’t be forbidden (or implied that it isn’t to be used with other kinds of resources).

    I also recommend that the caption to the second part of 3.21.2.11 simply read “Make notes on aspects of collation, if considered important for identification or selection.” rather than limiting it to early printed resources, rare printed resources, or manuscripts. We should be free to record notes about aspects of the collation for any kind of resource.

    I support the proposal.

    I support the proposal.
