    300 212 p. : ‡bill. ; ‡c 25 cm. + ‡e1 computer disk (3 1/2 in.)

    • A system requirement note should be added if the information is readily available.
    300 185 p. : ‡bill. ; ‡c 25 cm. + ‡e1 computer optical disc (4 3/4 in.)
    Changed from computer laser optical disc [April, 1999]

    300 x, 228 p. :‡bill., ports. ;‡c28 cm. +‡e1 cassette (analog)

  2. Record the details of the accompanying material in a 500 note (1.5E1c).
    Use this when more detail is needed or when the accompanying material relates to one item of a bookset or serial (1.5E1c).

    500 Accompanied by cassette with title: Sounds of spring in the desert.
    500 Vol. 9 accompanied by computer disk.
    500 Issue for Sept. 1987 accompanied by 8 transparencies. [serial]

  3. Make a separate catalog record.
    Use this option when the items are issued separately or in the rare instances when a full record for the accompanying material is required.
    Relate the records using an informal 500 note (or a 590 note if the items were not issued separately) and make related work added entries as necessary.
    Please consult team leader before using this option.
