Illustrations : LC-PCC Best Practices Guidelines
“Recording the presence of illustrations is a core element, and not a matter of judgment.”
Not exactly. You are required to record illustrations if the resource is intended for children. And it is usually a good idea to record their presence, for other resources. But you are permitted to exercise cataloger judgment, and may also ignore ‘minor’ illustrations (as you define ‘minor’).
