I have a travel guide book that came with a map.  I removed the map (you have to to open it) by tearing it out on the perforations, but I still have the map and would include it with the book.  The book is listed in the system as coming with a map, so I know I could not post it if it was missing the map.  My question is: is it postable if the map has been detached from the book?  Thanks for any advice!

I am not sure the "official" answer, but if it was me, I would post the book even though the map is now detached.  If the requestor was going to use the map, they would have to detach it to see it anyway.

I would post it, particularly if the map must be removed in order to use it or the book.

But be sure to include the map!  Since the map is required supplementary material for this book, it is not postable without the map.  Help Center says supplementary materials must be included, but it doesn't say they still need to be attached. =)
