I just want to express a heartfelt thanks to all who worked on this new
Appendix. I've been using a draft copy to help prepare a local
presentation on integrating resources and I can testify that it is truly
an outstanding resource. Its great strength is that it brings together
AACR2, LCRI, PCC policies, MARC tagging and a lot of thoughtful
commentary on how to apply them all. Especially valuable is the final
section with full record examples including Web screenshots, full MARC
records and commentary for several versions of a changing Website.
