FYI: PCC Catalogers:
Note the dates for implementation of these AACR2 amendments, please do
not begin to apply these guidelines to PCC records before this date.
LC intends to implement "Amendments 2001" to AACR2 on December 1,
2001. By that time, the LCRIs related to "Amendments 2001" will have
been distributed by CDS to LC staff and to NACO Participants.
The "Amendments 2001" rule revisions are already included in the current
LC Cataloger's Desktop; they have been incorporated into the AACR2 text
and they also appear separately under "Most recent Amendments."
There are three major rule revisions in "Amendments 2001":
(1) Conference publications can be entered under the heading for the
conference if the name of the conference appears anywhere in the item
being cataloged (21.1B2(d)). LC will apply this rule revision to
conference publications cataloged after November 30.
(2) British terms of honor ("Sir," "Dame," "Lord," "Lady") will no
longer be included in headings (22.1C, 22.12) but will be retained in
statements of responsibility (1.1F7) and can be used to resolve
conflicts in headings (22.19B). LC will apply this rule revision to
headings being newly established after November 30.
(3) Chapter 9 has been renamed "Electronic Resources." The GMD
"electronic resource" replaces "computer file" and conventional
terminology (e.g., "1 CD-ROM") can now be used in the extent
statement. The entire chapter has been reissued although a number of
the rules within the chapter do not contain any changes.
LC will apply revised Chapter 9 to items cataloged after November 30.
Please refer any questions you may have to Bob Ewald, CPSO.
