RDA 4.1: 245 field (Title)
Bracketed title information
Under AACR2, terms to clarify a title proper could be supplied by the cataloger. There is no equivalent for this under RDA transcription rules RDA 184.108.40.206 (RDA) except for Cartographic resources RDA 220.127.116.11 (RDA) and for Moving Image resources RDA 18.104.22.168 (RDA). So, if the LDR/06 is not e or f and the 007/00 is not m, then certain terms within the 245 $b which are enclosed in square brackets (e.g. announcement, novel, poems, proceedings, program, selections) will be deleted. If there is nothing remaining in the $b, the $b will be deleted:
original field: 245 00 $a Seattle Film Festival :$b [program]. updated field: 245 00 $a Seattle Film Festival.
If there is an equal sign = preceeding the $b, then the text that follows the equal sign will be copied into a 246 field with indicators of 31.RDA 22.214.171.124 (html) The new 246 will not be added if the exact same 246 field already exists:
original field: 245 00 $a International meteorological vocabulary =$b Vocabulaire météorologique international = Mezhdunarodnyi meterologicheskii slovar' = Vocabulario meteorologico internacional. updated fields: 245 00 $a International meteorological vocabulary =$b Vocabulaire météorologique international = Mezhdunarodnyi meterologicheskii slovar' = Vocabulario meteorologico internacional. 246 31 $a Vocabulaire météorologique international 246 31 $a Mezhdunarodnyi meterologicheskii slovar' 246 31 $a Vocabulario meteorologico internacional
Statement of responsibility
Within the 245 $b, certain terms which come right before the $c will be moved into the $c IF the $c has "by" [creator]. RDA 126.96.36.199 (html) This includes, but is not limited to, the following terms: a novel, dramatised adaptations, novel, research and text, and stories:
original field: 245 10 $a Characters From Dickens :$b dramatised adaptations /$c by Barry Campbell updated field: 245 10 $a Characters From Dickens /$c dramatised adaptations by Barry Campbell
[et al.] changes to [and others]
Another major change from AACR2 to RDA is the lack of a “rule of three”. In RDA there is no limit to the number of names that can be put into the statement of responsibility. RDA 188.8.131.52 (html). If the number of names is going to be limited you use [and others] or indicate how many others. LC-PCC PS (html). Our process can change the former practice of using elipses and [et al.] to the current use of [and others].
Within the statement of responsibility (245 $c), … [et. al.] will be changed to [and others]:
original field: 245 10 $a Second growth /$c Sean Markey ... [et al.]. updated field: 245 10 $a Second growth /$c Sean Markey [and others].
This change will be flagged on Title Field Updates Report (see R152, Step 6.2) in case you would like to add additional contributors to the statement of responsibility.
[pseud.] changes to pseudonym
The system can also expand certain abbreviated terms in brackets, if desired. Currently, this rule applies to spelling out [pseud.] in 245 $c to pseudonym.
There are a few changes to RDA that cannot be fully completed through an automated process. The system will flag the field on Report 155 Title Field Contains [sic] or [i.e.] so the cataloger can review the record and make the necessary changes and additions:
- Spelling errors in the title field (245) should no longer be marked with '[sic]'. MARS 2.0 will flag records with [sic] on a report so that a cataloger can add any necessary 246 fields
- Other indicators of a mistake within the title may have been marked with '[i.e.]' in the 245 field. As with spelling errors, MARS 2.0 will flag the record with [i.e.] on a report
