Middlebury's Local Policies

Basic tenet: Create an authority record when cataloger feels there is a need

  1. Guidelines: create an authority record when the following is necessary:
    • Name needs a cross-reference for a variant
    • Name is especially significant or unique to Vermont
    • Name is associated with several (3 or more?) items
  2. Use the item in hand for information about variants, birth & death dates, etc.
