Happy friday everyone
I have a question about birth dates.
I just had a discussion with someone who suggested that new AAPs were required to have a birth day (year) in the 100 $a Surname, name, $d 2018-
For the creation of AAPs..
RDA 184.108.40.206 states: Include a date of birth (see 9.3.2
) and/or a date of death (see 9.3.3
) if needed to distinguish one authorized access point from another. Record the year alone.
LC-PCC PS for 220.127.116.11 presents an optional addition:LC practice/PCC practice for Optional addition:
Add a date of birth and/or date of death to new authority records, even if not needed to distinguish between access points.
I was taught by my trainer not to add qualifying information to AAPs unless needed - but that it is generally good practice to add 046s if that information is available.
