  Again (as with other topics) it is not entirely clear whether all folks 
responding to this thread are talking about NACO records or exclusively 
local authority records.  Anything goes locally, but NACO exists to 
standardize conformity with LC practices.

   Also, it is good practice to understand that online records available to 
all libraries are capable of being revised at will (no more "liquid 
paper"), and that policies suggesting revision of "preliminary" 
thesis-author headings once those authors pick "preferred" name forms 
(previously called "published" name forms) would be reasonable.
