As for those 70+ name/title records: The authority toolkit recently acquired the ability to assist with this task. See the documentation at:
http://files.library.northwestern.edu/public/oclc/documentation/#batchcorrection
I am in the process of adding an option not to create the "former heading" 4XX for name/title changes. New installers including this option (default value: don't create the name/title 4XX) will be ready by 6:00 p.m. Central time.

I would really hope we don’t need VAPs for all those name-title headings.

Greetings—

I’m updating a composer’s NAR to include a death date.  There are an additional 70+ authority records for works by the composer (Walter Hartley).

It’s clear from various guidelines, that when personal name authorities are involved, old forms of headings should be included as a see-reference.  For example, the CDM Z1 in the 4xx See From Tracings reads:  “Generally provide a variant form 4XX access point<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__desktop.loc.gov_search-3Fview-3Ddocument-26doc-5Faction-3Dsetdoc-26doc-5Fkeytype-3Dfoliodestination-26doc-5Fkey-3Dmaauth4XX-26hash-3D4XX-26fq-3Dmyresources-257Ctrue&d=CwMGaQ&c=yHlS04HhBraes5BQ9ueu5zKhE7rtNXt_d012z2PA6ws&r=hiqRHxI_D2cbG3zAhEs-IQ_TAOexBbETUTWONq-8K9w&m=skxi1xzpH6lxhoXnqhjoGAJLiR4IEIYvhgQQ6yAO4Ok&s=CS1tB2rsGHytqWUz9Pgi3MtAufmzqky37iLTeB9oALE&e=> for a former 1XX authorized access point<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__desktop.loc.gov_search-3Fview-3Ddocument-26doc-5Faction-3Dsetdoc-26doc-5Fkeytype-3Dfoliodestination-26doc-5Fkey-3Dmaauth1XX-26hash-3D1XX-26fq-3Dmyresources-257Ctrue&d=CwMGaQ&c=yHlS04HhBraes5BQ9ueu5zKhE7rtNXt_d012z2PA6ws&r=hiqRHxI_D2cbG3zAhEs-IQ_TAOexBbETUTWONq-8K9w&m=skxi1xzpH6lxhoXnqhjoGAJLiR4IEIYvhgQQ6yAO4Ok&s=cSzjPrSAcUJZ77WK38m-VwI557sgXX2gHyc617c0Vqc&e=>, unless the former authorized access point was egregiously incorrect.”  The NACO FAQ also indicates this practice (http://www.loc.gov/aba/pcc/naco/personnamefaq.html#13<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.loc.gov_aba_pcc_naco_personnamefaq.html-2313&d=CwMGaQ&c=yHlS04HhBraes5BQ9ueu5zKhE7rtNXt_d012z2PA6ws&r=hiqRHxI_D2cbG3zAhEs-IQ_TAOexBbETUTWONq-8K9w&m=skxi1xzpH6lxhoXnqhjoGAJLiR4IEIYvhgQQ6yAO4Ok&s=hECHRxnyNLvhu3ikJAkB7oSSxaOi07-2sfwF8zTUbbk&e=>).

What doesn’t seem as clear is whether the same practice should apply to name-title authority records.  In practice, sometimes such VAPs are included (e.g. the 350+ VAPs from ‘Byrd, William, 1539 or 40-1623’), but that is not always the practice (e.g. there are only 12 VAPs from ‘Glinka, Mikhail Ivanovich, 1804-1857’, though roughly 150 NARs were updated to reflect a name change).

I’d appreciate clarification on this point, before I revise all the NARS for Walter Hartley.

Thanks in advance,
David—
