Hello, and help! I am in a cataloging class and need help and am embarrassed to ask but desperate. First lesson was to create one card on any fiction book. This is all well and done but where do I find specific rules? Basically on where and when to indent, how many spaces? I know basic description rules but can find out what indentation rules are for each line. Thank you, Susan in Mass
