Subject: Re: Question about use of RDA relators in authority records

 

Yes, the explicit relationship between a creator and a work is one of the types of relationships treated in the document. It’s not required (almost none are required) but is permitted. Yes, the relationship may seem to be implicit in the 1XX field, but note that this relationship will not always be “author”—it might be “composer”, “architect”, “artist”, etc., so the specific creator relationship isn’t implicit in the 1XX field; also the 1XX field will only include one of the creators if there are more than one. So it is permitted to be more specific about the relationship(s) using the 5XX field in authority records for works. Again, not required.

Subject: Re: Question about use of RDA relators in authority records

 

Thanks for the information, Bob. I have recently seen a number of records that follow this pattern:

100 1_  [Author]. $t [Title]
500 1_  $i Author: $a [Author]

Was that pattern considered by your committee?

Thanks.
Nancy

Michael,

 

A joint task group consisting of members of the PCC Standing Committee on Training and the PCC Standing Committee on Standards has drafted a PCC Guidelines for Relationship Designators in Authority Records document over the last year or so. It has gone up the approval process and should be out shortly (still a few technical details, evidently, on LC’s part).

 

The short answer to your question, however, is yes, you should use a relationship designator with a 5XX field if an appropriate one is available. Capitalize the designator and follow with a colon. Also record “$w r” E.g.:

 

100 1_ Alexander, Lloyd. ǂt Book of three. ǂl Spanish ǂs (Solé)

500 1_ ǂi Translator: ǂa Solé, Albert ǂw r

500 1_ ǂi Contained in (expression): ǂa Alexander, Lloyd. ǂt Chronicles of Prydain. ǂl Spanish ǂs (Solé) ǂw r

 

110 2_ A.H. Cox & Co.

510 2_ ǂi Successor: ǂa Hoechst UK Ltd. ǂw r
