I have a couple of questions for the Collective Wisdom about authorized access points for conferences/events.
There was an ongoing exhibition name established under AACR2:
111 2# Interferenzen
(It’s not a named event under RIs 24.7 and 24.8, but nevermind.) Since I am cataloging several of these, which all took place during 1990 and 1991, I wanted to re-evaluate the record and recode it for RDA. I have added (Exhibition) because of 22.214.171.124, but now I think I need to qualify by place too because all of the exhibitions were held in Vienna (126.96.36.199.2). Under AACR2, rule 24.7B4 said to do this, but its RI said not to; I can’t find an equivalent policy statement to negate the RDA instruction. So, first question: For the collective name, is this correct:
111 2# Interferenzen (Exhibition : Vienna, Austria)
Second question: If the above form is correct, should the location be repeated in subfield c in the authorized access points for the individual exhibitions?
111 2# Interferenzen (Exhibition : Vienna, Austria) ǂn (1st : ǂd1990 ǂc Vienna, Austria)
Ana Cristán’s Power Point titled: RDA Special Topics: Conferences (from RDA Refresher Training at LC) has examples where the location in the first set of parentheses is broader than the location in the second set, like this:
111 2# ATE (Conference : Canada) ǂn (10th : ǂd1999 ǂcOttawa, Ont.)
but no examples where they are the same.
