Creators and Contributors : LC-PCC Best Practices Guidelines

Myth:
“Creators and contributors perform the same function, and the instructions regarding them are interchangeable and found in the same chapter of RDA”

Reality:

Absolutely not true!  Creators are involved at the work level, and are covered in Chapter 19; contributors are involved at the expression level, and are covered in Chapter 20.  Further, if you use a relationship designator, be sure to use one appropriate to the “WEMI” level.
