General Considerations

Renaissance Center books will receive regular cataloging, with bibliographic, item and holdings records. Volumes, if not rare, will be barcoded and receive call number labels. Dust jackets will be retained, if present, and barcodes and labels will be applied to the dust jacket. Records for Renaissance Center will have holdings set with their own symbol. Records will be sent for authority control, unless copied from another administrative unit.
