Rare Book Terms

The Bibliographic Standards Committee of the Rare Books and Manuscripts Section (ALA/ACRL) is pleased to announce the availability of electronic versions of their controlled vocabularies for use in rare books and special collections cataloging.

The new interface provides both standard and hierarchical views of all terms found in the six print volumes, (Binding Terms, Genre Terms, Paper Terms, Printing & Publishing Evidence, and Type Evidence) as well as changes and additions. Relator terms for use in special collections cataloging are also available.
