1 Physical Description: MARC tag 300

2 Definition The physical description of the item, which consists of the extent of the item and its dimensions. Use field 300 also for other physical details of the item and information concerning accompanying material. From OCLC bibliographic formats and standards, MARC tag 300

3 MARC tag 300 Commonly used subfields:  Extent ($a) Other physical details ($b) Dimensions ($c) Accompanying material ($e) Source of information  Entire resource ISBD punctuation  Colon before subfield b  Semi-colon before subfield c  Plus sign before subfield e

4 Extent (subfield a)--Books n Record the number of pages (printed on both sides) or leaves (printed on only one side) u Record the last numbered page or leaf in each sequence – xii, 27 p. u If there are many sequences – 1 v. (various pagings) u If an unnumbered sequence makes up a large part of the whole, include in brackets – 125, [40] p. u For a set of volumes – 26 v. u If the book is large print – 355 p. (large print) u If the book is braille – 100 leaves of braille u If a book contains plates, record the number of leaves or pages of plates at the end of the sequence of numbering – 150 p., [16] leaves of plates F Plate: a leaf or page that does not form part of the preliminary or main sequence of numbering n AACR—abbreviate “pages”, “volume”, etc. as instructed in Appendix B n RDA—spell out “pages”, “volume”, etc.

5 Extent (subfield a)—Books (cont.) If pages are not numbered: n AACR u Supply number in brackets or u Enter phrase “1 v. (unpaged)” n RDA u Enter phrase “[number] unnumbered pages”—do not put in brackets or u Enter phrase “1 volume (unpaged)”

6 Other physical details (subfield b)-- Books n Disregard illustrated title page and minor illustrations n Disregard tables containing only words and/or numbers n If illustrations are one or more of these types, use: coats of arms, facsimiles, forms, genealogical tables, maps, music, plans, portraits, samples—enter in alphabetical order after ill. n Optionally, can use general term ill. for illustrations without specifying type n If all illustrations are color – “col. ill.” n If some illustrations are color – “ill. (some col.)” n For graphic novels – “chiefly ill.” or “chiefly col. ill.” n If the book is not illustrated, subfield b will not be present n AACR—abbreviate types of illustrations as instructed in Appendix B n RDA—spell out “illustrations”, “color”, “portraits”, etc.

7 Dimensions (subfield c)--Books n Give height in centimeters n Always round up n If width is greater than height, give both height and width – 18 x 30 cm. n If width is less than half the height, give both height and width – 24 x 11 cm. n AACR—period follows cm—considered an abbreviation n RDA—cm considered a symbol, not an abbreviation u Period after cm only if 300 is followed by 490
