This was solicited by Kathy Glennan, and is re-posted to USMARC by
permission of the original sender, Matthew Wise of NYU. Kathy has also
sent me some icky music examples, which I will set up similarly to my
previous examples, for comparison.

>>I read through Diane's proposal and am in total agreement. These
>>links need to be established between physical items, not between
>>items and bibliographic descriptions.
>>Say for instance that we have two sets of parts for two different
>>string quartets by one composer (i.e. two bibliographic entities,
>>each of which is comprised of four performance parts). Then let's
>>say that my library has chosen to bind both 1st violin parts
>>together, both 2nd violin parts together, etc. Using the 004
>>technique, I could only link the holdings record for the 1st violin
>>part of Quartet no. 1 to the entire set of parts for Quartet no. 2,
>>the 2nd violin part of No. 1 to the entire set of parts for No. 2,
>>and so on. But by using the 876 technique (as Diane suggests), I
>>could link the 1st violin part of No. 1 directly to the 1st violin
>>part of No. 2.
>>This is only one example of how much more precise and useful the 876
>>technique would be.
>>Please feel free to ask Diane to contact me directly if she needs any
>>further explanation or examples.
