I think if the text is the same, i.e. that the published book is just a
different manifestation, then the original title would be recorded in 240,
as was done. If the dissertation represents a new expression, then
according to RDA practice you would use a 240 for the original title
rather than the old practice of using a 700 author/title related work
added entry. This is covered in the NACO RDA training on expressions.
Technically the 240 is not completely correct according to RDA, because
with a new expression you should not just have the title of the original
work, but LC's practice is not to specifically name expressions in a case
such as this.

I thought maybe using a 700 field with a $i for the author/title of the dissertation might be better. I've never seen this approach before and would like some advice.
