JUDITH HOPKINS AT SUNY BUFFALO, thanks for your report concerning the
LITA MARC HOLDINGS INTEREST GROUP MEETING, on Saturday, 12 January 1991 at
ALA Midwinter.  I'm unclear, however, about what appendixes you are referring
to in the following excerpts:

Would you be willing to elaborate on what appendixes you refer to?
Do they have something to do with the appendixes in the USMARC Format
for Holdings Data manual?  Clarification would be appreciated.  Thanks.
