Notes should be useful and informative.

Most notes are optional.

Wording is not prescriptive for most notes.

When possible, use the form: [introductory words]: [information], [dates]

Avoid using cataloger's jargon.

Use designations in notes when there is evidence that the information contained in the note does not apply to the entire span of the serial.

Input notes in numeric tag order (except 533); input the "Description based on" note as the last 500 note. Combine the "Description based on" note and the Source of title note when both are given.

Do not give other title information appearing on the chief source as a quoted note!
