Hello,

PCC Post RDA Test Guidelines have been updated today to clarify PCC
practices for conference publications during the post RDA test
period: http://www.loc.gov/catdir/pcc/PCC-Post-RDA-Test.html. The
guidelines were revised by members of the PCC Steering Committee in
consultation with Library of Congress Policy and Standards Office in
response to questions from PCC catalogers.

Previous wording:

If an AACR2 name authority record exists for an ongoing conference
constructed according to LCRI 24.7B (i.e. the heading for the conference
does not include the number date or place of any one specific conference),
PCC catalogers continuing to apply RDA will use the AACR2 form as the
basis for making additions to the name in bibliographic records for
individual conferences.

New wording:

If an AACR2 name authority record exists for an ongoing conference
constructed according to LCRI 24.7B (i.e. the heading for the conference
does not include the number date or place of any one specific conference),
PCC catalogers continuing to apply RDA will use the AACR2 form as the
basis for making additions to the name in bibliographic records for
individual conferences.  Separate AACR2 name authority records should not
be created for individual conferences.

If there is no AACR2 authority record for a numbered conference and the
conference is being cataloged as a monograph, the RDA authority record for
the conference would include all appropriate qualifiers (e.g., number,
date, place).

Sincerely
