This final report reflects the comments from the BIBCO community as they relate to the TG charge to define a set of required elements for bibliographic records for monographs using a single encoding level. Our tasks were:
• to develop a "model" for bibliographic records using a single encoding level to replace the BIBCO full and core levels
•to use the BIBCO core level record as a starting point, and
•to focus on a model for the printed monograph to be used as a basis for models for other formats
