RDA might apply. Ibero catalogers have always capitalized the word following “Coleccion” [etc.] and added an x-ref for that part of the title.

Subject: [PCCLIST] Capitalization in series title when first word is "generic"


Under RDA, are we still capitalizing the second word in a series title when the first word is a “generic” indication of a series?

For example, Collection Genres et discours, Serie Manuales educativos

Apologies if I’m missing the answer in RDA or related documentation.
