Cataloging template for FRC

Because the pamphlets that comprise the French Revolution Collection (FRC) share many characteristics, particularly the location and format of important bibliographic information (i.e. title, author, and publication information), we have made ample use of cataloging templates.  During the training process and beyond, Project Cataloging Assistants refer often to the FRC sample record on our project wiki (and copied below) to guide them as they create MARC catalog records for the pamphlets in this collection.
