Transcribe the name of the publisher, distributor, releaser, broadcaster, etc., following the place of publication, distribution, release, broadcast, etc. and preceded by a space, a colon, and a space.
If more than one publisher, distributor, etc., appears, choose the first. Optionally, include all, separating each from the other by a space, a semicolon, and a space.
If there is no publisher or distributor, or the publisher or distributor cannot be determined, do not include either place or publisher/distributor, etc. in the description. Optionally, if the country of publication is known, include it in square brackets if it is felt valuable to give users this context for the content of the resource.
For serial titles with publishers that change, transcribe each publisher separately with an indication of the date span during which this publisher appeared, placing the most current publisher first.
