Subject: Re: [PCCLIST] Parentheses or separate subfield for dates in "Selections" AAPs?

> RDA E.1.1 doesn’t give any information about punctuation when “date of work” is used for conflict resolution in what it still calls “uniform titles”...
The "conflict resolution" in the first column and the pair of parentheses in the second column are meant to be read downward and repeated for each of the RDA elements listed in the far right column, from "Form of Work" through "Other Distinguishing Characteristic of the Work," until something different interrupts the flow, like the period for "Date of Expression." This table should be have revised some time ago to make this and other similar areas clearer to the reader.
> ... however, see the examples under 188.8.131.52.
There's also the longhand explanation under E.1.2.5.
