Materials from certain fine presses are collected by the UCR Libraries and usually housed in Special Collections. The names of these presses are attached in an alphabetical list. They are to be traced on the bibliographic records in a 710 Corporate Added Entry field.
If printing information (paper, font, printer, number of copies) is given in the colophon, please include it in a 500 note.
Information specific to the UCR Library copy is given in a 590 note.
