Looking at the 374, I'm wondering how someone makes an occupation out of being a conscientious objector.

Subject: Re: [PCCLIST] Heading "Arnold, Malcolm"

 

This is a recurring problem in the NAF, where dates are added to a name even though there is no need to do so under current policies.  That can cause unnecessary bib maintenance, but on the other hand, unqualified personal names can be a real pain in authority control as well.

 

The changes to Arnold seem to have been sparked when Arnold, M. ǂq (Malcolm) was established.  It had a 400 which was creating a conflict.  LC resolved that conflict in the standard way by adding an occupation, so now the composer doesn’t need the dates in the heading.

Subject: [PCCLIST] Heading "Arnold, Malcolm"

 

PCCLIST:

 

The 100 field heading for Malcolm Arnold (n  79140955) has seen its $d come and go over the past few weeks.  Will there be a final decision on the matter, considering there are plenty of name-title headings that may or may not need attention as well?
