There is an interesting discussion on AUTOCAT about brackets. It seems ISBD has been changed so each subfield has opening and closing brackets. Like so, [S.l.] : [s.n.]. AACR would display as [S.l. : s.n.]. AACR won't be updated, but the replacement RDA currently follows the new ISBD rules. This poses the larger question, are we following AACR until RDA is published or moving in that direction now by following the new ISBD?
