DATING FIELDS
Comments
Edits were made to this field in May 2010. Data entry rules were made more precise, and harmonized with those recommended in Cataloging Cultural Objects: A Guide to Describing Cultural Works and Their Images. By Murtha Baca, Patricia Harpring, Elisa Lanzi, Linda McRae, and Ann Whiteside. Visual Resources Association. Chicago: American Library Association, 2006. Website: http://www.vrafoundation.org/ccoweb/index.htm (accessed 2010-03-05).
Entry rules
Enter the school and/or stylistic associations. Multiple entries are allowed. This could include style, historical period, group, movement, or school. Generally use the adjectival form (Impressionist), but alternatively, the noun form (Impressionism) may be used – but be consistent. In general, capitalize terms for styles and periods; use capitalization as indicated in your source (for example, the AAT). Use terminology in the language of the catalogue record. Use diacritics as required. When the School/Style term overlaps with a term used in another field (for example, Culture or Period), record the information in all relevant fields. When in doubt about the specific School/Style, choose a broader term about which you are certain. Uncertain data should be followed by space and "?".
