Karen, I was out on vacation all last week, so I missed this. The current transformation from marc uses the 130/240 as the workTitle, but takes the 245 if there is neither. We're working on overhauling the title construction, since some of those properties in the Title class are really Work properties, not properties of the title itself .

Subject: [BIBFRAME] Work titles question
I apologize if this information is covered somewhere in the BIBFRAME documentation but I wasn't able to find it, nor could I glean it from what I looked at in the code in github. (Maybe I just ran out of patience.)
It appears that every BIBFRAME "record" that is generated from a MARC record is given a work title, whether or not the MARC record contains a uniform title (130 or 240).
1) is this the case?
2) if so, is the work title derived from the title proper (245) in the MARC record?
3) if so, what subfields of the 245 are included in the work title?
4) If more than one 245 subfield is included in the work title
a) are they combined into a single string?
b) are they combined into a single string in a specific order?
c) is there any manipulation (dropping or adding) of punctuation?
