Since it is early on a Saturday morning and many who could answer this question may not see this before Monday… I’ll do my best to answer. NACO libraries can choose which names they establish, they do not have to create an authority record for each entity. If a library is a BIBCO library and chooses to code the bibliographic record as PCC—then it is expected that all access points will have authority records.
However, I am sure that any NACO library that has this title would appreciate your help. When I searched OCLC, I found other authors with your name. Are you willing to provide a date of birth or would you like to suggest your preferred form of name? Could you provide a link to a cv or webpage?

Subject: [PCCLIST] NACO Query and Book Information: Survey of Emerging Cataloging Practices : Use of RDA by Academic Libraries
Hi, I have a query about working of NACO. My understanding is that when a NACO library receives a book and catalogs it, then it should create a Name Authority Record for the author of the book, if not already established in the Library of Congress Name Authority File.
But for the book Survey of Emerging Cataloging Practices : Use of RDA by Academic Libraries, a catalog is created by many PCC NACO members, but a Name Authority Record is NOT created for the author.
Ultimately this books will reach the Library of Congress as it is published from the United States and when they catalog it, they will also create the NAR for the author. My query is whether the PCC NACO libraries who had acquired and cataloged this book should have created an NAR for the author of this book?

Press release (New York, May 5, 2016):
Primary Research Group Inc. has published the Survey of Emerging Cataloging Practices: Use of RDA by Academic Libraries, ISBN 978-157440-383-1 The study presents data and commentary from 60 predominantly academic libraries about their use of Resource Description and Cataloging, or RDA. The questionnaire was largely designed and the summary written by award winning cataloging and metadata librarian Salman Haider... ... Data is broken out by of academic institution, tuition level, and type or Carnegie class among other variables.
The study reports on library perceptions of RDA, ease of implementation, librarian training and use, and reception by patrons, among other issues. The study presents detailed commentary on the integration of RDA with ILS systems, and reports on the impact of RDA on cataloging productivity and use of staff time. It also contains detailed information on how librarians are training for use of RDA and what resources they are using to accomplish this. The report also looks at the general state of cataloging in academic libraries with questions about budget, staffing, technology use and more.
Just a few of the report’s many finding are that:
According to the survey participants 111.72 minutes is the mean extra time needed for every 10 library items cataloged using RDA vs. prior procedures. The median time extra was 50 minutes, and the range was from 0 to 600 minutes.
A plurality of survey participants were not in favor of retro-conversion services for RDA cataloging as they do not think that it will result in saving of time and money, and high quality records. Out of all 56 responses received 26 were against retro-conversion, 12 favored it, and 18 responses contained mixed opinions.
35.59 percent of all survey participants say the library has spent “about the same” on cataloging over the past five years, while 32.20 percent estimate that they have spent “somewhat less.” Just 8.47 percent of participants say their institutions have spent “somewhat more” on cataloging.
