Absolutely agree about getting lost in the depths of RDA. I really wanted to consult Anne's book rather than going straight to RDA, but all the copies were out of the library!

Subject: Re: [CIG-E-FORUM] Record 5 discussion # or not #
I went from 188.8.131.52 to the General guidelines at 1.7, to the Symbol rules at 1.7.5 to the LC-PCC Ps for 1.7.5, which says to omit the symbol if its not essential. (though I think originally I just transcribed it, given RDA's emphasis on transcription).
Would also add: I've found this kind of jumping form rule to rule happens a lot. Whilst the online format of the toolkit makes this much faster than flipping pages, I feel sometimes that I'm lost in the depths of RDA and can't find my way out again!

On whether to include the # in the series numbering, I recorded it based on 184.108.40.206 which says to record as it appears on the source of information. What do others think?
