Short Guide to Formatting the Description Field
Usually, Aleph will create a correctly formatted Description field in Tab 1 of the Item record if the item record was created by a prediction pattern. When you are creating an item record for a periodical that cannot be predicted, or editing an item from the Bind/Changes process, use these guidelines when creating the contents of the Description field.BASIC FORMATTING:
Larger units of enumeration and/or chronology precede smaller units, and colons separate each level. If dates (chronology) are on the piece in addition to other enumeration, enclose the chronology information in parentheses. Notice that there are no inserted spaces. However, month and day are separated by a space, and all days should be shown in two digits.
