Rare Books and Manuscripts Relationship Designators

  • The relationship designators comprise relationship terms specific to the needs of the rare materials community. RBMS Relationship Designators are 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.

    CVEG also maintains the RBMS Controlled Vocabulary for Rare Materials Cataloging (RBMS CVRMC) available here.

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