I would also like to know what would one do with the uniform title in
cases where there are such symbols as the $ sign. We sometimes get
things like that. We have a title: Thomas@ - it's part of a series and
is translated in other languages. How would you construct the uniform

Kevin, I've seen similar items with punctuation or symbols used as
letters for effect. I'd do as you suggested, a 245 as the title is
printed and a 246 with what it's meant to be (i.e. Pirate Corps!).
Anyone who does agree can walk the plank--happy Friday!

Subject: [PCCLIST] Dollar sign used as letter "s" in title

Try as I might, I can't determine what the policy would be in using the
dollar sign in place of the letter "s" in a title.  And especially, the
implications for uniform titles (or Authorized Access Points, if we're
doing an RDA record...)

The PCC policy in AACR2 1.0E and RDA 1.7.5 seems to indicate that,
since the dollar sign ($) is a character that is available in our normal
character set, there is no need to substitute it.  The only example
using a dollar sign is "Where to stay USA from 50* to $9 a night", in
which the cent sign is changed to "c", but the dollar sign remains. 
There are no examples of a dollar sign taking the place of the letter

I am assuming that I should just go ahead and use the dollar sign in
the 245 field, and add a 246 field replacing the dollar sign with an

But where I get stuck is at the uniform title.  Or, is a uniform title
technically necessary?  The actual title I'm dealing with is "Pirate
Corp$!"  The title "Pirate Corp$" is unique, but "Pirate Corps" is not.


(Sorry, I can't offer any money for your help.  But I'll gladly give
you the dollar sign from this title...)
