DCM Z1:  672  Title Related to the Entity


The 672 field may be used to record a title that is related to the entity represented by the 100, 110, 111, or 151 in the name authority record.  For example, in an authority record for a corporate body, 672 fields may be used to record titles for which the corporate body is a creator, issuing body, or subject.  The primary purpose of the 672 field is to document that there is a relationship between the 1XX entity and the title recorded in the 672 field.

Use of the 672 field does not negate the need to use the 670 field for the title for which the authority record is being created, nor to use the 670 fields to justify information recorded in the 1XX and 4XX such as preferred and variant forms of name.

New 672 fields may be added after existing ones to record additional titles associated with the entity.  Do not routinely delete or change existing 672 fields when inputting new 672 fields.

Non-Latin script elements should be given in romanized form.

A title recorded in a 672 field in subfield $a may be a title proper, title proper of series, preferred title, etc.  Titles should be recorded following the appropriate RDA and LC-PCC PS instructions for that element.  Apply the same instructions on non-filing characters in the 245 field to record the number of non-filing characters in the second indicator of the 672 field.

Subfield $w - Bibliographic record control number:

Subfield $w is used to record bibliographic record control numbers (e.g., 001, 010, and 016 fields in bibliographic records).  It is recommended that catalogers provide $w when readily available.  Subfield $w should be repeated for each instance of a separate control number (e.g., an LCCN and an OCLC record number should be provided in separate subfields).  For further instructions on inputting record control numbers, see the subfield $w section within the CONSER Editing Guide (CEG), Section E. MARC 21 Format for Serials as Applied within CONSER, Variable Data Fields, 76X-78X Linking Entries, Linking Entry Fields - General Information.

NOTE:  Subfield $w should only be used with titles for the manifestation.
