We hope that the expansion of the currently existing fields we have suggested will cut down on the tendency to use the "note" field for the ‘extra’ information necessary for born digital material. The note field should be used as little as possible, although we do recognise that there are instances where it is the only option, e.g. TNA have used the note field for acknowledgements, e.g. to a funder of cataloguing work.
