What's that expression that's already come in handy, elsewhere? 

"Best CONSER practice:"  

CONSER did decide that blank and 1 are the only useful second indicators, 
back when CSR was written on stone tablets, and it's fine with me 
if the CCM does indicate that it remains CONSER practice to use only those. 

However, all those other indicators are still valid, 
and are in use in communities (rare serials cataloging, for one) 
that do consult our documentation. 

I think that the reference could be a bit less terse than 
"formerly, more specific indicators were used." 
How about 
"formerly, indicators citing the specific source of the variant title (cover, running title, spine, etc.) were used".

Subject: [PCCTG1] MARC coding for variant titles in CCM Module 7

Hello all, 

While revising Module 7, we editors have run into an issue regarding coding for the indicators of field 246. Currently, the content and examples of Module 7 (most frequently seen in section 7.2) offer guidance on when to use specific indicators in field 246, including second indicator 4 for cover title and 6 for caption title. However, according to the CONSER MARC-to-RDA Core Elements document, current CONSER practice is to code all variant titles as 246 1# or 246 11 for parallel titles. 


We’ve thought about handling this in one of two ways. We could either simply remove any mention of indicators that aren’t 246 1# or 246 11, or we could keep the information on the additional indicators, and add something stating that current practice is to use 246 1# or 246 11. Before we commit to one of the methods, we thought that we’d get a sense of how other CONSER members would like this situation to be handled. 

Thanks, 

-Kevin
