John,

 

Thanks for the clarification.  We don’t do a lot of legal material here, so we didn’t understand the RDA instructions properly.  We will update the existing SAR from a 110 $t to a 130, but we won’t add the date to the heading.

The  name of a series is not the kind of "collective name" of a compilation of treaties referred to in RDA 6.29.1.17 or 6.19.2.8.  It refers to a small  group of related treaties that are referred to by historians or others by a collective name.  This is the same as under AACR2 25.16.  A series such as the Executive agreement series should not have the dates of the treaties added to the authorized access point.  Please don't do this.  Otherwise we'll have chaos with every treaty series.

Kevin,

 

Since no one else has volunteered, I’m happy to take you up on your offer.  Would you prefer that we go ahead and change the AAP on the serial record when we submit our new SAR to NACO, or would you prefer to do all the updating of the record at one time?

Northwestern has the entire run of this series (at least as far as I can tell from our holdings record) but we'd need to recall volumes from our storage facility.  If no one else is working on it, we could do it.

Just to clarify—we know our SAR is correct, the dates are needed per 6.29.1.17 since the series is a compilation of treaties.  What we are asking is if we can change the serial record 110/240 to a 130 to match the series record without upgrading the rest of the serial record to RDA, since we don’t actually have holdings on the serial title.

The Executive Agreement Series would be covered by the second paragraph of 6.19.2.8, which leads back to 6.2.2 and eventually to 6.27.1.4.  This gives an authorized access point of Executive agreement series.

Subject: Series that is a compilation of treaties

NLM is cataloging several monographs from the Executive agreement series, which is a compilation of treaties.  We need to upgrade the SAR (no 99039289) for this title to RDA.  Using the newly published RDA guidelines 6.19.2.8 and 6.29.1.30 we have determined that the correct 130 for this series should be: 130 _0  $a Executive agreement series $d (1929-1946)

 

The corresponding serial record is LCCN 29027570.  Since the AAP of the serial should match the SAR, the serial record needs to have the 110 and 240 removed and replaced by a 130 _0  $a Executive agreement series $d (1929-1946).  Is it OK for us to modify this COSER serial record this way, and keep the record coded as AACR2?  We prefer not to redescribe to RDA as we don’t have no. 1, and only have a few scattered issues.  If it isn’t OK to change the AAP without fully recataloging as RDA, is there a library out there that has no. 1 who would be willing to upgrade the entire record to RDA?

 

Since this serial merged with another treaty series to form a third, we are going to run into similar issues when creating the SARs for the other two titles (LCCNs for the bibs are 32009417 and 46006169), so we want to handle this correctly.
