Diane and others,

It appears best to follow AACR2 for the entire heading, if any part of it is AACR2, and to code it as such.  Hybrid headings could turn out to be too challenging to get flipped into complete conformance to a single code, once an implementation decision is reached.  

If the "building block" you are using is RDA, keep the entire new heading in RDA.  You may consult [log in to unmask] for help.  Adding 7XX fields in authority records is considered optional.

If you encounter a situation such as Bob Maxwell described today, where the AACR2 heading and the RDA heading are not equivalent in scope, and a portion of the required RDA heading would conflict with an established AACR2 heading, use AACR2 to catalog the item during this interim period.

John,

If you are using an AACR2 authority record as a building block for a new RDA heading, how would the resulting authority record be coded: AACR2 or RDA?  If in your second example, the new subordinate entity was not Tobacco Advisory Group, but the Department of Tobacco Advice, would a library doing RDA cataloging establish a hybrid heading ($a=AACR2 and $b=RDA)?

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 Department of Tobacco Advice 
710 24 $a Royal College of Physicians (London, England). $b Department of Tobacco Advice

OR

110 2_ $a Royal College of Physicians of London. $b Dept of Tobacco Advice 
710 24 $a Royal College of Physicians (London, England). $b Department of Tobacco Advice


Also, what about guidance for those of us who are continuing to catalog in AACR2, but may encounter RDA authority records.  I assume the PCC still wants us to use the form of name in the 1XX field in our bibliographic record.  Are we expected to add 7XXs for the AACR2 form of the name?  And what happens if you need to use an RDA authority record as a building block for a new AACR2 heading?  How would that resulting authority record get coded?

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
