For the UARCHIVES copy, DO NOT WRITE IN THE BOOK. Write the call number on a green flag & place in book. Database Management or LLMVC staff will type an acid free slip with call number on it for the permanent slip. The correct form for this copy is:

2/19/04 per Elaine Smyth and Marsha Aucoin:
If we get a paperback copy of a title that is already in workflows and this book DOES NOT have the LSU press edition statement with a different copyright date, or the Louisiana pbk. edition statement with a different copyright date, then this book should be added to the existing record - but only if it is the 1st printing for the paperback copy, and ONLY for the UARCHIVES copy. The other 3 copies go to Acquisitions to Shayne Bertrand to offer to other libraries. (See title "Lee and his generals in war and memory".) Also, add a local 590 note to the bibliographic record that says "Library's Archival copy is paperback."
