Dear PCC List,
Has anyone manually updated headings qualified by "Polyglot" (or representing two languages) yet? As you know, only one language per expression is allowed in RDA authority records. I guess what I'm trying to figure out is, when you encounter a "Polyglot" or two-language expression heading how should we fix it? Would you update that heading to one language expression, and then make new authorities for the others? Unlike other headings with the 667 note instructing catalogers to evaluate/manually upgrade the heading, the language expression changes are not "one-to-one."
I'm searching the FAQ documents on the LC site, but haven't had much luck in finding guidance. Perhaps this is addressed in the Toolkit itself?
