I would like to know how PCC libraries should handle the creation of access points for expressions in the absence of a final report from the “ PCC Access Points for Expressions Task Group”. We have been advised by PCC that these reports contain the recommendations of the Task Group alone and should not be used until such time as the final document is posted as an official PCC document or a LC/PCC PS.
The guidelines in the LC-PCC PS 6.27.3 reflect LC policy only. I am currently a BIBCO RDA devisor and also create PCC records and need some help figuring out how to crate access points for expressions that are not covered by the guidelines in 6.27.3.
An example is the creation of an access point “[Name of author].$tWorks.$f2013. According to LC-PCC PS 6.27.3 we would not add an expression attribute since these are only applied in the cases of music resources, sacred scriptures, translations, and language editions. I would like some help in deciding if this expression is permissible for PCC libraries or if we should not be adding the date.
Another issue that I am not sure what to do with is how to handle the existence of other NARs for the same “work” and have the addition of a date that are coded AACR2.
Thank you, Heidi Lerner
