Order of Elements in Note Area in RDA according to ISBD and related RDA Rules

RESOURCE DESCRIPTION & ACCESS RDA

Question. Is there any rule in RDA for the sequence of “notes” in a MARC bibliographic record?



Answer: There is no prescribed order on recording notes.  Background information: RDA Appendix D 1.1 shows the ISBD arrangement of notes based on areas of the record as in AACRR2. 



Instructions from CONSER Editing Guide:



Notes in records for continuing resources fall into two categories:

1)   Notes input in the 5XX note fields, and;
2)   Notes generated on output from other fields in the record (e.g., 246, 310, etc.).

The 5XX fields contain general notes (field 500) and specific notes (fields 525, 550, 588, etc.) that cannot be generated from another field.

Other fields that may generate notes are: 022, 037, 074, 086, 222, 246, 310, 321, 362 (indicator value "1"), 760-787. These fields generally have display constants that identify the specific type of information supplied in the note.
246 11 Denki Gakkai ronbunshi
May display as:
Parallel Title: Denki Gakkai ronbunshi

Order of notes
5XX notes are input in numeric tag order.  If necessary, specific instructions are provided within individual fields for the multiple input of notes having the same tag number. The integration of 5XX notes with notes generated on output from other fields must be specified by the institution's output program.

Bibliographic Framework as a Web of Data: Linked Data Model and Supporting Services

The Library of Congress is pleased to report that we have reached two important milestones with respect to our Bibliographic Framework Initiative: the introduction of a draft data model for web-based bibliographic description and a first meeting of a small group of early experimenters currently exploring the feasibility of the proposed model.  The new model is simply called BIBFRAME, short for Bibliographic Framework.
The model document is a high-level view of the BIBFRAME model - a primer.  Although the model is a draft and expected to change, we want to share it now with the community not only so that you are informed of progress being made but also to engender conversation and constructive feedback.   The URL for the document  Bibliographic Framework as a Web of Data: Linked Data Model and Supporting Services is:  http://www.loc.gov/marc/transition/pdf/marcld-report-11-21-2012.pdf

LC-PCC PS for 1.7.1 General Guidelines on Transcription

LC-PCC PS for 1.7.1 General Guidelines on Transcription>>Access Points for Corporate Names, Including Meetings, in Name Authority and Bibliographic Records (LC practice/PCC practice):

1. Quotation marks. If the form of name in the access point includes quotation marks around an element or elements of the name, retain them. Use double quotation marks in the access point instead of other forms of quotation marks.

2. Initials. If the form of name in the access point consists of or contains initials, regularize the spacing and put one space after an initial that is followed by a word or other element that is not an initial and no space after an initial that is followed by another initial consisting of one letter.

EXAMPLE
source
F&H Denby
authorized access point
110 2#$a F & H Denby

EXAMPLE
source
U. S. D. A. Symposium …
authorized access point
111 2#$a U.S.D.A. Symposium ...

EXAMPLE
source
I E E E ...
authorized access point
110 2#$a IEEE ...
  
3. Abbreviations. Precede or follow abbreviations consisting of two or more letters with a space, e.g., "Gauley Bridge (W. Va.)," "Ph. D. Associates."

4. Place name at end. If the form of name in the access point includes a place name at the end and the place is enclosed within parentheses or is preceded by a comma-space, retain in the access point the punctuation as found.

EXAMPLE
110 2#$a California State University, Northridge

5. Subfield $i (Relationship information) in authority records. When subfield $i for relationship designator is used in a 5XX field, begin the field with subfield $w r. Give subfield $i as the second subfield; the first word in the relationship designator is capitalized, and the subfield ends with a colon.

EXAMPLE
100 1#$a Garr, Arnold K.
510 2#$w r $i Employer:$a Brigham Young University

RDA--9.19.1.6--Profession 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>>9.19.1.6 Profession or Occupation


9.19.1.6 (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)

Access to AACR2 via Cataloger’s Desktop after March 31, 2013

In January 2012 the Library of Congress announced that it would transition from AACR2 (Anglo-American

Cataloguing Rules, second edition) to RDA (Resource Description and Access) on March 31, 2013. AACR2 is currently available via LC’s web-based cataloging documentation subscription service, Cataloger’s Desktop, as well as through RDA Toolkit. In keeping with LC’s decision to switch from AACR2 to RDA, Cataloger’s Desktop will simultaneously change how access to AACR2 is provided.
On April 1, 2013, if you subscribe to both Cataloger’s Desktop and RDA Toolkit (which includes an online version of AACR2), you will continue to have access to AACR2. If you subscribe to Cataloger’s Desktop but not to RDA Toolkit and want online access to AACR2, you will need to establish an RDA Toolkit subscription at http://www.rdatoolkit.org/

To ease the impact of the transition, current Cataloger’s Desktop subscribers will get an additional month for FREE upon subscription renewal. That’s 13 months access to Cataloger’s Desktop at the regular annual subscription rate. This offer is only valid for subscription renewals from November 1, 2012, through October 31, 2013.

Note: AACR2 is the joint property of the American Library Association, Canadian Library Association, and the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals. Copyright © 2005. by ALA, CLA, and CILIP.


AACR2 FAQs
  • You must subscribe to RDA Toolkit if you wish to access AACR2 from within Desktop. 
Q: I know the AACR2 rule number and want to find related rules in RDA. Can I do that?

A: Yes. Just type the AACR2 rule number into the searchbox, enclose it in quotes (e.g., "1.1B1") and then click the Search button. All of the related RDA instructions will be retrieved. You may want to limit the search by selecting the checkbox next to RDA and/or LC-PCC PS.

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
