    This topic was posted to DCRM-L on November 24, 2010 under the subject line "DPC: remove card catalog vocabulary from general instructions on notes in 7A1.4"

    Proposed change, modified per DCRM-L discussion: 7A1.4. Notes may also be made to justify added entries intended for special files indexes of personal or corporate names, titles, genres/forms, physical characteristics, provenance, etc.

    For the discussion thread, see the DCRM-L archives: https://listserver.lib.byu.edu/pipermail/dcrm-l/2010-November/thread.html#2541

    Please don't comment on the question here. I've simply posted it for the record because the "Poll" feature only allows for a short character string. Public discussions of DCRM proposed changes take place on DCRM-L so that people who aren't members of ALA can contribute.

    (But if anyone knows how to get a lengthier text into an ALA Connect Poll, please do comment here!)
