Bob, 
   
The 1XX forms from existing AACR2 authority records are to be used in bibliographic records.  This is true even when the AACR2 form represents a "building block" in a new heading being formulated.  RDA forms may be added to 7XX fields in the authority records, particularly when the heading form would be different.  Examples:


AACR2 authority record

100 1_ $a Brown, George, $c Rev.
700 14 $a Brown, George $c (Clergyman)

New heading needed for cataloging

100 1_ $a Brown, George, $c Rev. $t Poems
700 14 $a Brown, George $c (Clergyman). $t Poems


AACR2 authority record

110 2_ $a Royal College of Physicians of London
710 24 $a Royal College of Physicians (London, England)

New heading needed for cataloging

110 2_ $a Royal College of Physicians of London. $b Tobacco Advisory Group
710 24 $a Royal College of Physicians (London, England). $b Tobacco Advisory Group


The Policy Committee has also slightly revised the final portion of Decision 2:

2. After the test period ends in Dec. 2010, PCC members may continue to use the RDA testing guidelines from Jan. 2 until further notice, with the exception that already-established AACR2 heading forms should be used in bibliographic records. This decision will be reevaluated at the time an implementation decision is made.

Decision 2 needs a bit of clarification, perhaps:

"2. After the test period ends in Dec. 2010, PCC members may continue to use the RDA testing guidelines from Jan. 2 until further notice, with the exception that already-established AACR2 heading forms should be used in bibliographic records. This decision will be reevaluated in April 2011."

A. I assume this means we will continue to add 7XX fields to the authority records for the RDA form, which may differ from the AACR2 form in the 1XX field, but we will use the 1XX form in the bib record.

B. What about brand new RDA authority records related to existing AACR2 authority forms? Presumably we are to use the RDA form in the 1XX of those records (and in the RDA bib record), but what if that form differs from the AACR2 form on the related authority record? E.g. (example from the "testing guidelines"):

AACR2 authority record

100 1_ $a Brown, George, $c Rev.
700 14 $a Brown, George $c (Clergyman)

New RDA authority record

100 1_ $a Brown, George $c (Clergyman). $t Poems
