RDA 2.2.4, Other Sources of Information, notes:
When instructions specify transcription, indicate that the information is supplied from a source outside the resource itself:
<!--[if !supportLists]-->· <!--[endif]-->By means of a note (see 2.20)
<!--[if !supportLists]-->· <!--[endif]-->Or by some other means (e.g., through coding or the use of square brackets).
If encoding RDA in MARC, square brackets appear to be the only option for “some other means.” In the development of BIBFRAME, are there plans to enable an encoding to indicate that information has been supplied?
MODS has already developed this attribute. See, for example, the titleInfo element, for which the “supplied” attribute is defined as follows:
An indication that the title information did not come from the resource itself.
This attribute is used as supplied="yes" when the title information has been supplied from an external source, not from the resource.
MODS also defines the “supplied” attribute for originInfo/place, originInfo/publisher, originInfo/edition, and physicalDescription/extent.
Something equivalent in BIBFRAME might be useful for encoding any RDA transcribed element (as listed in RDA 2.2.4).
