Like the 3xx fields, most of the information found in these fields is pulled from the item. In the case of the summary
and contents fields, this information often comes from an outside source. Many of the fields listed here do
not need to be included in a record. However, their inclusion can help patrons find what they are looking for. 
What you decide to  include or not include, depends on you library, patrons and their needs.
