DCRM(MSS) is one of a family of manuals providing specialized cataloging rules for various formats of rare materials typically found in rare book, archival, manuscript, and special collection repositories. The term "rare materials" refers to any materials that repositories have chosen to distinguish from general materials by the ways in which they house, preserve, or collect them. Rarity in the narrow sense of “scarcity” may or may not be a feature of these materials. Together, these manuals form Descriptive Cataloging of Rare Materials (DCRM), an overarching concept rather than a publication in its own right.
