Large print/large type books are defined by the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped of the Library of Congress and OCLC Bibliographic Standards and Formats.

  • In OCLC, items labeled "large print" or "larger print," regardless of font size, should be coded as large print.
  • In the CCS database, consider 13.5-point or larger font size to be large print. (Note this would not include materials like "large print" Bibles with a smaller font size.)
  • HarperLuxe's "larger print" books typically use 14-point type and should be considered large print.[1]
  • Harlequin's "larger print" books typically use 13.5-point type and should be considered large print.[2][3]

Fixed field (008)

Form of Item (23) = d

Variable fields

Edition (250)
Record a formal edition statement that appears on the item. If a formal edition statement is lacking, but "Large print" or "Larger print" appears on the item, record that as an edition statement. If all these are lacking, optionally supply a bracketed edition statement in the form [Large print edition].[4].
250 1st Thorndike Press large print edition.

250 Larger print.

250 [Large print edition].
If there are multiple edition statements, in the CCS database record both statements in the same 250 field. (In OCLC, record separate edition statements in separate 250 fields.)
250    Revised edition, Large print.
When both "1st HarperLuxe edition" and "Larger print" appear on an item, they are different ways of saying the same thing (HarperLuxe is Harper's "larger print" imprint, so everything HarperLuxe publishes is "larger print"). In the CCS database, record both in the same 250 field.
Example:
250    1st HarperLuxe edition, Larger print.
Extent of item (300 ‡a)
Optionally, qualify the pagination with (large print).
300    243 pages (large print) ;‡c25 cm
Font size (340 ‡n)
Specify "large print" in a 340 field. (Note that the first letter is lowercase, and there is no final period.[5][6])
340    ‡nlarge print‡2rdafs
Genre (655)
Use the local genre heading Large type books.
655  0 Large type books.
