Inverted Cross References in NARs for Conferences

Inverted cross-ref in NARs

Example (AACR2)
111 2  National Town & County Planners Congress

411 2 County Planners Congress, National Town &
411 2 Town & County Planners Congress, National

Note: Both variants were provided before when cataloging with AACR2 because of RI 26.3A (References from inverted names of Conferences, Exhibitions, Fairs, Festivals, etc.)—

These references are no longer needed as variants in RDA.  Reason: Key word search in ILS will resolve this need. Please add all the qualifiers (no.; date; place) just like your 111 field for both RDA variants.

LC-PCC PS: When creating an authority record for the collective conference, do not add the numbers/and/or dates to the authorized access point and variants if you are providing variants


RDA Blog : RDA Blog is a blog on Resource Description and Access (RDA), a new library cataloging standard that provides instructions and guidelines on formulating data for resource description and discovery, organized based on the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR), intended for use by libraries and other cultural organizations replacing Anglo-American Cataloging Rules (AACR2). This blog lists description and links to resources on Resource Description & Access (RDA). It is an attempt to bring together at one place all the useful and important information, rules, references, news, and links on Resource Description and AccessFRBRFRADFRSADMARC standardsAACR2BIBFRAME, and other items related to current developments and trends in library cataloging practice.

It received good response from librarians, catalogers, and library professionals from all around the world.
