<!– Id=25070001–> 507: Prefer Tag 255 for Maps (AACR and RDA)
507: Use field 507 for scale notes in pre-RDA and pre-AACR2 cataloging, or for the scale of graphic materials such as architectural drawings, technical drawings, models, art reproductions, and three-dimensional artifacts. For the scale notation of cartographic materials, cataloged under both AACR2 and RDA, use field 255 (Mathematical data associated with cartographic material, including a statement of scale, statement of projection, and/or a statement of bounding coordinates).
Modified Brief Messages
<!– Id=20000018–> 000/06: Map needs Tag 255 (AACR and RDA) Message changed from: 000/06: Map needs 255 or 507
000/06 (Type of record) contains 'e' or 'f' (cartographic material), so field 255 (Cartographic Mathematical Data) should be present in the record to provide a statement of scale, statement of projection, and/or a statement of bounding coordinates.
