DCM Z1:  1XX  Headings


NOTE:  The use of subfield $h for the addition of content type in an authorized or variant access point is pending at this time.

LC/PCC catalogers should consult the PCC Post RDA Test Guidelines at:  http://www.loc.gov/aba/pcc/rda/PCC%20Post%20RDA%20Test%20Guidelines.html for instructions on using RDA and/or AACR2 in new and existing authority records.

When modifying an authority record for any reason, delete a final mark of punctuation in the 1XX field unless it is a part of the data (e.g., a period in an abbreviation) or is called for by the cataloging instructions (e.g., a parenthetical qualifier).

NOTE:  In order to minimize the impact of database maintenance with associated bibliographic records and/or related authority records, catalogers are urged to refrain from making unnecessary changes to 1XXs.


Canadian Headings:  RDA

As of August 2012, LC and PCC catalogers creating RDA name authority records are not required to search Library and Archives Canada (LAC) to determine the form of the authorized access point for either personal or corporate names.  In cases of conflict, etc. a search for the LAC form of name may be conducted in the VIAF (viaf.org) or other databases.  Note that as of April 2015, all Canadian First Nation entity names should be coded as 151 to align with the instructions for U.S. Tribal entities in LC-PCC PS 16.4.1.


LC series practice:  As of June 1, 2006, LC does not create or update SARs.

PCC series practice:  Transcription of the series statement is mandatory if applicable.  Searching for series authority records, tracing the series, and the creation and maintenance of series authority records are optional.

For the title proper of a multipart monograph, consult RDA

Choosing a monographic series title proper:

(1)  If the resource has more than one form of series title, consult RDA and

(2)  If the resource has the series title in more than one language or script on the same source, consult RDA

(3)  If the resource has series title pages in more than one language and/or script, consult RDA

(4)  Consider spacing and changes in typography when determining where the series title begins and ends.  Also consult RDA

Establishing an SAR access point:

(1)  Determine choice of authorized access point based on RDA 6.27 and its associated LC-PCC PS.

(2)  Exclude from the authorized access point the following information included in the series statement in the bibliographic record for the component part:

(a)  initial article in subfields $a, $t, $n, and $p;

(b)  other title information;

(c)  statement of responsibility;

(d)  parallel title(s);

(e)  ISSN;

(f)   numeric/chronological designations.

(3)  Add a parenthetical qualifier(s) if appropriate according to the guidelines in LC-PCC PS

(4)  If you find a CONSER record,

(a)  do not use an access point from a record in the following categories:

010 prefix is "cf"

010 prefix is "cn" and 040 $b is "fre"

unless you have determined that the access point on such a record is the correct RDA authorized access point.

(b)  accept the choice and form of access point on records with 042 code of lc, lcd, or pcc as the authorized access point unless there is a clear-cut error.  If you are a CONSER participant, correct an error in form of qualifier; choice of qualifier is accepted as found.  If you are not a CONSER participant, notify the CONSER Coordinator (lhaw@loc.gov) if an error is discovered; use the correct authorized access point on the SAR.
