Field definition and scope:

Field 130 contains a title used as a heading in an established heading record or in a traced or untraced reference record.  In an established heading record, field 130 contains the established form of a uniform title.  In a reference record, this field contains an unestablished form of a uniform title.

The National level record requirement for this field is Mandatory if applicable.

Field 130 is NOT repeatable.

Guidelines for applying content designators:

The content designators identify the subelements occurring in a title that identifies an item or a series that is not entered under a name in a name/title heading.  The title is constructed according to the generally accepted cataloging and thesaurus-building rules [e.g., Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules (AACR 2), Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH)].

Uniform titles used in phrase subject headings (e.g., Bible and atheism) are contained in the X50 fields.

A title entered under a name is contained in subfield $t (Title of a work) in the field appropriate for the author's name (X00, X10, X11).
