Controlled Vocabulary for Rare Materials Cataloging

  • The RBMS Controlled Vocabulary for Rare Materials Cataloging (RBMS CVRMC) comprises terms specific to the needs of the rare materials community. RBMS CVRMC content is maintained by the Controlled Vocabularies Editorial Group (CVEG), a committee of the Rare Books and Manuscripts Section (RBMS) of the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL), a division of the American Libraries Association (ALA). New terms are added at the request of community members and vetted for inclusion by CVEG.

    The full introduction can be found here.

    CVEG also maintains the RBMS Relationship Desgnators available here.

    The CVEG co-editors can be reached at "[email protected]"
