Section 3.2.1.3 recommends using for Publication Type a controlled list established in MARC 21 Type of Record Leader/06. However, the term “visual material” [seemingly to describe a piece of artwork] given as an example in Table 6 is not in the controlled list (http://www.loc.gov/marc/bibliographic/bdleader.html)

Submitter Proposed Solution


I endorse choosing a controlled vocabulary. It may be that MARC Leader/06 vocabulary is not sufficient. RDA’s list of content types in RDA 6.9.1.3 might be another option.
