Thanks so much for providing this info. I looked at two of them. We have access to one title of the two and I could add RDA qualification to the author that is not the one with the $t... So in some cases we could change only the 'other' 'Author of'. I hope I can use this one as part of my RDA/NACO review process.
I assume from all the messages that 'more info was needed' before a decision is made about undifferentiated names and RDA? I would be very interested in a summary of the meeting.

Subject: [PCCLIST] Undifferentiated names in name/title headings
At ALA in Anaheim I was asked about name/title headings that involve undifferentiated names. I find 1578 of them, identified in the attached spreadsheet, in case anyone is interested. If the existing undifferentiated records are teased apart, and if something is done to the resulting 1XX fields to make them unique, these name/title records will also have to be dealt with in some fashion.
