While an integrating resource may be finite or continuing, there is little difference in the way in which it is cataloged.  Therefore, all integrating resources are covered by Chapter 12.  Figure 3 shows how monographs, serials, and integrating resources are covered in AACR2.

In addition, rule 12.0A also enables other finite resources that bear the characteristics of serials but are limited in duration to be covered by the rules of Chapter 12.  See CCM Part 1, Module 2, What is a Serial, for a discussion.
