The program is limited to print and electronic monographs and serials; no nobook materials.
Because of our multi language client base, we are not replacing ISBD inclusions ca., [S.l], [s.n.], which are few in our database,
We are not changing main entry from title to first author for AACR2 rule of three records; it seemed too difficult to program.
