  1. Input information into all applicable boxes; include both the LCCN of the newly created NAR and the 1XX field.
  2. Delimiters and diacritics create conversion problems when transmitting data; therefore, as appropriate:
    • Include subfields in headings but convert delimiters to dollar signs (e.g. $b)
    • Remove diacritics before submitting the form and include a note in the comments box that the heading includes diacritics.
  3. Include source information (as used in 670) and other helpful information in the comments box.
