All rare books added to Special Collections are collected for their physical form as well as their content. Therefore, they are not marked, labeled or stamped. No rare books have barcodes. Truly rare books should be cataloged using the manual, Descriptive Cataloging of Rare Materials (Books) (Washington, D.C.: Library of Congress, 2007), which is itself the authorized Library of Congress interpretation of AACR2 2.12-2.18 (section on "Early printed monographs").
