Good morning, Everyone,

I wonder if our issue doesn't boil down to these two questions:

When IS an expression level SAR needed?  

What changes constitute a new work?

I think that we all understand that a new expression SAR is needed if a new language is involved.  But what are the other threshold issues that require a new expression level SAR?

If the language is the same from one expression to another expression, then do we always consider that one SAR covers them all for instance.

I think it would be helpful to be able to say "These are the instances/categories where you consider creating a new work level SAR.  These an expression level SAR.  In all other cases, baring something unusual, you should not create a new SAR.

Also, In the question from last week, if both publisher expressions WERE numbered, and there was a PCC serial bibliographic record for each, the SARs would need to match the serials bibs.  Would those serial bibs have different AAPs?

Yes, “Works” is a different problem from series, though not unrelated since so many series are “works” of an author. There is a serious problem in the authority file because the way AACR2 (and NACO policy) organized works was quite different from how RDA organizes them. The conventional collective title “Works” represents the aggregate containing (or purporting to contain) the complete works of a person (or I suppose family or coporate body). By definition (and PCC policy, still undocumented, but decided at the 2014 Fall Policy Committee meeting) there can be only one such aggregate—either it’s the group of the complete works or it’s not. So any differentiation, if wanted, is at the expression level.

Under PCC policy under AACR2 as represented by the LCRI, uniform titles with “Works” automatically got the year of publication added to them. This is an attribute of the manifestation, not the expression. So we wind up with authority records like

Shakespeare, William, ǂd 1564-1616. ǂt Works. ǂf 1974

Which stands for the Riverside Shakespeare, and also

Shakespeare, William, ǂd 1564-1616. ǂt Works. ǂf 1997

which not only stands for The Riverside Shakespeare, but also the “The complete works of Shakespeare”, “The Unabridged William Shakespeare” and also “The Norton Shakespeare,” all of which are different expressions of the complete works.

Add to this the wrinkle you bring up below: some of these aggregate work expressions have been treated as series (on separate bibliographic records for each part tied together with a series authorized access point); and sometimes the same expression has been treated by another agency as a multipart monograph (on a single bibliographic record). This treatment decision is often arbitrary, based on what the cataloger in a given instance decided, not on the nature of the expression itself.

The basic principle is simple: one expression, one description (a.k.a an authority record that includes one authorized access point).

I am not suggesting that anyone should tackle Shakespeare right now to clean up the records, but for other authors (such as John Wesley) it is worthwhile to figure out what is going on and consolidate (or split) records if appropriate. I don’t know the facts about the Wesley case, but you do. From what you say below it looks as though Wesley, John, ǂd 1703-1791. ǂt Works. ǂf 1975, perhaps Wesley, John, ǂd 1703-1791. ǂt Works. ǂf 1975 (Oxford ed.), and Wesley, John, ǂd 1703-1791. ǂt Works. ǂf 1984 are in fact the same expression. As in the discussion of the other series that’s been going on this week, changing publisher doesn’t make a new work. And it doesn’t make a new expression. It might make a new manifestation (although in this case even that might be debatable). But since authorized access points only exist for the moment at the work or expression level, if the facts you present are correct, then there should only be one description (authority record) for this aggregate work. It happens that it’s also been described as a series, and that’s fine, but it doesn’t change the analysis about whethere there is one or more than one expression.

This may not be quite relevant to the discussion here.  But take a look under Wesley, John. Works.  Two series in 1975 and 1984.
The one in 1984, first started at Oxford, but then Abingdon took it over and numbering continued from one set to the other, but there are two different authorized headings for the 1984 series as well as for the 1975 series.  And in the 1975, one is classed collectively, and the other as monographic set.  I forget what we did locally when I catalogued; I may have described separately and classed collectively.
In any case, these "Works" by Wesley can become and did become a bit muddled in terms of description and explaining it to patrons and other librarians.

What I was trying to say is that, even though we are creating separate records for separate manifestations, that does not mean we also create separate AAPs.  Since a different record does not necessarily mean a different work, you use the same AAP in both if they both contain the same work.  We do not identify the manifestation in an AAP (which is what it has been looking like you are arguing for).

I’m not sure what you mean, Kevin. The different records identify the different manifestations and do not imply that they are different “works.”

Well yes, of course different manifestations require different records.  But that has nothing to do with identifying the works.

The differences described come principally from OCLC’s “When to create a new record” (which seems to apply to “manifestations” rather than “works”?)

The question is:  Are these two different works, or are they two different manifestations?  I haven't seen any arguments that would convince me these are different works, but as far as I can tell no one has tried to argue that they are not different manifestations.  The differences described in the post below are manifestation-related, not work-related.  Of course such things should be in the descriptions in order to distinguish the Haymarket volumes from the Brill volumes.  But RDA does not have provision for constructing AAPs for manifestations.  We assign the AAP for the work/expression, not for the manifestation.  There may be cases where a manifestation element is used in the AAP in order to distinguish a works/expression (e.g., publisher or place of publication of the first manifestation), but that is because there is no other suitable distinguishing element to use.  That does not change the fact that the AAP pertains to the work/expression, not the manifestation.
