Delete and replace with:

1.1C. Media terms

1.1C1. choose at least one term from each of the two lists below.

For display. the terms may be enclosed in square brackets. Separate terms from different lists with a space semicolon space.  Separate two terms from the same list with a comma space. It is suggested that Carrier display before Content, because Carrier more often resembles legacy GMDs.

Preferably display media terms preceding all descriptive data in accord with International Bibliographic Description (ISBD) Area 0, or substitute icons based on the media terms or MARC21 fixed fields. Do display MARC21 33X $3 indication of what part of a resource the term applies. Do not display the NARC21 33X $2 subfield giving source of the term.

Some have opted to display content and carrier terms following collation (MARC21 tag order), not displaying media type. Some display content and carrier terms in one line with the label "Format:", since "Carrier:" as a label suggest an airline or other mode of transporation.

Examples:

[online resource ; text]

[videodisc ; two- dimensional moving image]

[computer disc ; image, text]

If more than one term is needed from either list for a multipart resource, e.g., a book with a CD, precede the terms with an indication of the material specified, for example:

[Book: volume ; text : CD: computer disc : spoken word]

Separate media terms for differnt parts of a resource with a space colon space.

*["mixed" might be used for various pieces in a kit; RDA would list them separately; bracketed terms are MRI alternatives to longer RDA phrases, or missing terms.] 

[RDA offers three options for content terms: give all which apply, e.g., "text, still image" for an illustrated manifestation; all which are significant, e.g., "still image, text" for an art exhibition catalogue; or predominant only, e.g., either "text" or "still image", depending on which is a larger part of the manifestation. MARC21 has the option of repeating 336$a or repeating 336; repeating 336 is more common.] If desired, add a media type term from the following list to the terms taken from the preceding two lists. Give a media type term, if chosen, before the carrier and content terms and followed by a space, colon, space.

Do not display "unmediated". [microform : microfiche : map]

[electronic : online resource : text, image]

[Media content and carrier are core RDA elements. RDA uses "computer" rather than ISBD's Area 0 "electronic" as a media type. The carrier terms , "kit", and content terms "form", "globe", "image"., "large print text", "map", "mixed". "tactile", are not RDA terms. ISBD Area 0 content terms include "image (moving)" and "image (still)" rather than the longer RDA phrases.]

An alternate source of content and media terms is ISBD Area 0, with $2isbdcontent, $2isbdmedia:
