Using judgment, include relatively simple, non-complicated description of accompanying material as the final element of the physical description and describe more complex accompanying material information as a note.

Accompanying material can be described at the end of the physical description area, in formal notes using a structured sequence of bibliographic element, or in parenthetical statements in formal or informal notes.

The physical description elements for the accompanying material (e.g., pagination, illustration, size, etc.) always follow the primary bibliographic elements (e.g., title, statement of responsibility, etc.) or a descriptive generic term. Any maps present in the accompanying material are always emphasized in the illustration statement. Other types of illustration (e.g., diagrams, tables, etc.) may be mentioned if judged to be important.
