    Hello Nicole,


    I'd like to make a correction in the meeting minutes.  Please see the strikethrough in the attached under IV "BIBFRAME."  Also below.


    Input is still limited to romanization only, without the original scripts.   


    Clarification: in BIBFRAME, LC catalogers are asked to NOT input Romanization in BIBFRAME descriptions except for title and the access points.


    My apologies.  It is very likely that I did not explain clearly during the meeting. 


    Thank you.
