NOTE:  See MARC 21 Format for Bibliographic Data (130 Main Entry - Uniform Title) for code definitions not given below.


Field 130 is used for a uniform title that is the main entry.  A uniform title that is combined with a name heading (100-111) to comprise the main entry is input in field 240.

Uniform title headings are used for the following three functions:

1)   to bring together all entries for the same work when different expressions (e.g., translations, editions) of it have appeared under different titles.

130 0# Japon artistique. $l Japanese.

245 10 Geijutsu no Nihon.

2)   to differentiate works published under an identical title proper (i.e., subfields $a, $n, and $p).  (LCRI 25.5B)

130 0# Financial planning (Atlanta, Ga.)

130 0# Financial planning (New York, N.Y.)

130 0# Review (Institute of Public Affairs (Melbourne, Vic.))

130 0# Review (Ontario Motor Coach Association)

3)   to delete an initial article from the title of a section or part.  (LCRI 25.5B)

130 0# American men and women of science. $p Medical sciences.

245 10 American men and women of science. $p The medical sciences.

Both functions one and two may apply to the same title (e.g., a translation of a title, which in its original language must be qualified due to a conflict).

130 0# Sotsiologicheskie issledovanii͡a (Institut sotsiologicheskikh issledovannii͡a (Akademii͡a nauk SSSR)). $l English.

245 10 USSR report. $p Sociological studies.
