Remote Resources

I noticed in recent postings on AUTOCAT that the AACR amendments, due soon, will allow description of the collation of remote resources. About time. This is long overdue. Now our patrons can see if that JPEG is 100 KB or 100 MB. That is useful to know before clicking on the link. Also, records missing the collation just look incomplete to me, so I've had a stylistic dislike for this as well as an access concerns.

Now if we could just get AACR to accept the IFLA GMDs for electronic resources. Much more descriptive and useful.
