Adding an Awards Note (field 586)

 Use an Awards Note (field 586) to add information about awards associated with the resource you are cataloging. Awards information is important to many patrons, so taking a minute to enhance the record is worth the effort.  Always add the date that the award was given. If you’re not sure, check the Internet. The awards information does not have to be on your item or packaging to be included in the record.


Sections of a book titled “Notes”, “Selected Bibliography”, and “Bibliographic Sources” are all considered bibliographic references. Sections called “Other Resources” or “Sources of More Information” or lists of where the reader can find crafting supplies are really not bibliographic references but catalogers often include these. If they are already in the record as a bibliographic resource, leave them but do not add these types of references in the 504.
