One more point about that: if you’re going to add both, you will have a VERY  long list of 7XX fields for some books!

Subject: Title added entries in RDA


Watching the LC training materials for RDA, I believe a trainer said to add 740’s for analytical titles as well as 700 12 $t’s. Is that mandatory, or only helpful if particular cataloging softwares don’t make the $t searchable? My library’s software, Horizon, doesn’t make $t’s retrievable in the OPAC (though it does in what we call the “Staffpac”). But I thought we’d been instructed in the library world that 700 t’s were more correct than 740’s in most instances.
