Bob,

 

Thank you for your response.  Ideally, I would also be in favor of adding access points for all the parts.  Unfortunately, in reality, we would only be able to add an access point for the first contribution in most cases.

 

Thanks!

Ann

Ann: My question is: What constitutes a “substantial part of the resource?” I was interpreting substantial to mean the first work or article other than prefaces, introductions, etc.   So, in compilations that consist of, perhaps, 20 articles by different authors which are 10-20 pages each, I was providing a 700 12 authorized access point for the author-title of the first article.  I have noticed, however, that no other PCC contributing library seems to be providing author-title tracings in cases like this.  Therefore, I am wondering whether I interpreted this LC-PCC PS correctly.

 

Ann, I think you have interpreted the PS correctly. I suspect the reason you haven’t seen examples is that people aren’t yet aware of this section of the BSR or the PS. I’m glad you’ve drawn attention to it and reminded us. Note: I’m in favor of adding access points for all the “substantial” parts, not just the first, if the number is reasonable, but that’s optional. There’s no particular reason to favor just the first, except as a way of defining a minimum.

Subject: Access Points for Related Works for Compilations

 

Hello,

 

I would like clarification on the following section of the BIBCO Standard Record.  Under Related Works (page 16 of PCC RDA BIBCO Standard Record Metadata Application Profile, Jan. 01, 2013 revision), in the notes, it states “Give an analytical authorized access point for the predominant or first work in the compilation.”  It also refers you to RDA no. 25.1.

 

Under the LC-PCC PS for RDA 25.1, it states “For compilations of works, give an analytical authorized access point for the predominant or first work in the compilation when it represents a substantial part of the resource. Disregard contributions such as a preface or introductory chapter.”

 

My question is: What constitutes a “substantial part of the resource?” I was interpreting substantial to mean the first work or article other than prefaces, introductions, etc.   So, in compilations that consist of, perhaps, 20 articles by different authors which are 10-20 pages each, I was providing a 700 12 authorized access point for the author-title of the first article.  I have noticed, however, that no other PCC contributing library seems to be providing author-title tracings in cases like this.  Therefore, I am wondering whether I interpreted this LC-PCC PS correctly.

 

Please see OCLC #812067100 for an example.  The title of the book is Oxidative stress and redox regulation.  It has 16 articles by different authors.  My question is is it a BIBCO requirement to provide an authorized access point for the first article “Chemistry of thiol oxidation and detection?”  We did not enhance this record to BIBCO level, primarily because we did not want to have to create an authority record for this 700 12 author-title tracing.  But if we did enhance it to BIBCO level, would we be required to provide this 700 12 access point?  And establish it?  Or would these sorts of articles not be considered “substantial,” and, therefore, an author-title tracing would not be required?

 

Also, in the BSR, this section (Related Works) has an “R” meaning it is a recommendation. So is this tracing just a recommendation, or is it a requirement on a BIBCO level record?  Or, is the “recommendation” referring to providing a contents note?  While providing the access point is a “requirement?”

 

Thank you!
