Recently, and more frequently, I've been seeing the following type of 700 in RDA records for artists' monographs:


700 12 artist's name, $e artist. $k Works. $t Selections.


Presumably this access point is justified by Chapter 6, but can someone please help me understand how it's useful?

One rationale might that there's nowhere else in the present bib record nor in the related work's (eventual?) authority record to post the specific relationship between the creator and the work.

Slipping a designator in the access point itself--despite the legality of the $e under MARC--isn't justified by the instructions on building AAPs following RDA 6.27ff..
