RDA-- or Occupation

The need of making undifferentiated name authority record is less as compared to AACR2. Following rule helps in this regard:

Section 3: Recording Attributes of Person, Family, & Corporate Body>> Chapte 9: Identifying Persons>> 9.19: Constructing Access Points to Represent Persons>> 9.19.1 Authorized Access Points Representing a Person>> Profession or Occupation (9.16): Profession or occupation

   –Required for certain names; Can add to differentiate
   –LC policy: cataloger judgment choice to distinguish one person from another with the same name
     e.g. 100 1 $a Haider, Salman $c (Librarian)
