NAR n  94028161 is for the authorized access point: Cervantes Saavedra, Miguel de, $d 1547-1616. $t Novelas ejemplares. $l English & Spanish.  Can I simply convert this heading to: Cervantes Saavedra, Miguel de, $d 1547-1616. $t Novelas ejemplares. $l English, or should I create a new authority record with the latter heading and ask for NAR n  94028161 to be deleted?

There's some guidance on slides 19-20 in the PowerPoint file "Programmatic Changes to the LC/NACO Authority File for RDA" located here:


It boils down to creating new records for each expression and reporting the polyglot record for deletion.


I'll add that posting these steps to a NACO website FAQ, the DCM Z1, and/or elsewhere would make it easier to find.  I couldn't locate this info anywhere else.
