You may be absolutely right.  I just wish that if it were for the work, we would have at least a 380 indicating the genre/form of the work, which in this case is biography.

But as others have noted the last change to this NAF record was in 2012, which may reflect older RDA rules for expression.

In either or both cases, how can one tell if the NAF record is a work record or an expression record?

Gene,

Thanks. Are you sure the authority isn’t for the work? I notice there are a number of authorities for expressions with languages in $l.

Gene,

I don’t get that work when I search for OCLC 40450. Did you leave out some digits? I would not want to try looking it up under the title, because there are probably many bib records with that title.

Please see the following OCLC record *40450 for Scriptores Augustae historiae.  

After having many discussions on these lists, I was led to believe that the 1## line in the AAP should have the language, in this case $l Latin, since it is an expression.

 

This record is coded as RDA and updated by DLC among others.  Why is not $l Latin not included?
