While alternative titles are part of the title proper, they are not part of the preferred title.  Which means in the bib record you need a 130 or 240 field. For example:

100 Author. 
240 10 Title
245 Title, or, Alternative title. 
246 30 Title
246 30 Alternative title

And in an NAR:

100 Author. $t Title
400 Author. $t Title, or, Alternative title
400 Author. $t Alternative title

Subject: Alternative titles on expression records


I have the issue of establishing an expression record for the following title: Abriss der Aesthetik, oder, Der Philosophie des Schönen und der schönen Künst. Since alternative titles are consider title proper, I was wondering...

Does the NAR will include both? only the first part? a 4XX for the second part? or 2 4XXs for each part? I couldn't find any examples. Your collective wisdom will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance
