I would like to point out that the Cooperative Cataloging Rules is a wiki, as are the opencatalogingrules, and this means that interested people can cooperate to create something they want--not something that is simply given to them by others. This is why I used the wiki method since I believe there are a lot people who want to help, but they aren't really sure what other catalogers need. If MARC21 guidelines are needed, along with additional examples and explanations, it can be done in an entire variety of ways.

All kinds of things can be done!
