 What is most interesting about this thread is that people can compulsively require decision-making to be based on blind obedience to rules (even when the rules don't exist) rather than on critical thinking based on logic.

And these people vote?

Cheers!

Patricia,

We also think that Sons of Norway (U.S.). Leif Erikson Lodge No. 1 is the preferred form of the name.  And Kate James pointed to the instruction in RDA at 11.13.1.3 that tells us to add (Seattle, Wash.) to the access point, if a chapter, branch, etc., is recorded as a subdivision of a higher body.  But I'm still not convinced that RDA compels us to record the lodge as a subdivision of the parent body.  If the name were "Lodge No. 1" then I would agree that it "simply indicates a geographic, chronological, or numbered or lettered subdivision of a parent body" 
according to 11.2.2.14.3.  But with the words Leif Erikson in front of Lodge No. 1, does it still simply indicate a numbered subdivision?  LCRI
24.9 told us yes, that it does.  But there's no policy statement like it to tell us that it does in RDA.

Since you say there is no other Leif Erikson Lodge No. 1, there is no conflict if you use only "Leif Erikson Lodge No. 1" as the subordinate unit. As for the number, the examples given for 11.2.2.14.3 includes things like "Class of 1957" where 1957 is too generic to stand alone. I would  make a case that the number  makes "Leif Erikson Lodge No. 1" distinct enough and doesn't need its own geographic qualifier.

> We recently had to set up a body called Leif Erikson Lodge No. 1.  It's a lodge within the Sons of Norway.  It's not clear to us that "Leif Erikson Lodge No. 1" SIMPLY indicates a numbered subdivision of a parent body.
> "Lodge No. 1" would we think.  But does "Leif Erikson Lodge No. 1"?  As best we can determine there are many other Leif Erikson Lodges within Sons of Norway, but no other numbered No. 1.  So the question is, which is the correct RDA result:
>
> Sons of Norway (U.S.). Leif Erikson Lodge No. 1 (Seattle, Wash.)
>
> Leif Erikson Lodge No. 1
>
> Leif Erikson Lodge No. 1 (Seattle, Wash.)
>
> Leif Erikson Lodge No. 1 (Sons of Norway (U.S.))
>
> or something else?

> If the answer is as we did it in AACR2 (the first result given above), then there's nothing in RDA or a policy statement that says to add the local place name as a qualifier unless it's part of the name.  Don't we need a policy statement if we want to continue to get the same result as we did in AACR2?

> I searched OCLC authorities for RDA fraternal lodges and did not find any that were established differently than we were doing in AACR2.  That implies that catalogers are not really applying RDA as written but simply carrying over their knowledge of AACR2 and the LCRI for 24.9.
