Content Media Carrier Type : LC-PCC Best Practices Guidelines

Myth:
“If a resource includes multiple components (e.g., a volume and CD, with text, maps, and spoken word), you must describe all, using multiple 33X fields for Content, Media, and Carrier Type.”

Reality:

Not necessarily.  You must record the predominant term for each 33X field.  If you wish to record additional fields, you may.  Remember that each term is from a controlled vocabulary.
