The Archival and moving images materials manual on the Cataloger's Desktop does not follow AACR2 or utility guidelines and should generally not be used as a source for decisions. (For example, most of the examples of when to create a new record would be added to the same record if the Archival guidelines were followed; physical description guidelines differ significantly from AACR2; note order does not follow AACR2) However, some examples of notes from this resource will be cited. The glossary is excellent.
