History and background

Descriptive Cataloging of Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance, and Early Modern Manuscripts, more efficiently known as AMREMM, was written by Gregory A. Pass and published by the RBMS Bibliographic Standards Committee and the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) in 2003. AMREMM is a supplement to AACR2, similar in scope to Descriptive Cataloging of Rare Books, allowing creation of item-level MARC catalog records for pre-modern manuscript materials in library online public access catalogs as well as in the national bibliographic utility OCLC. The rules that are described define the categories of information that an online manuscript description should contain and how these records should be implemented according to AACR2 and the MARC21 environment.
