I would write to LC and ask them directly.


I’ve never seen this, but then, I’m more CONSER than BIBCO.

Subject: [PCCLIST] Minimal Level Cataloging Plus $5 DLC


Hi all,


I’ve recently run into a flurry of DLC records in WorldCat with 500 notes reading “Minimal Level Cataloging Plus $5 DLC.” They’ve probably been around for ages, but somehow I’ve just started seeing them en masse.


Are we supposed to take this note out if we enhance the record to full? I’ve seen records in which ibraries have taken the note out and others in which they’ve left it in. I tried searching LC’s website for explanations of what to do, or indeed of what “Minimal Level Cataloging Plus” even means, but couldn’t find anything.
