Recording of Other Title Information : LC-PCC Best Practices Guidelines

Myth:
“Recording of other title information is optional and a matter of cataloger judgment.”

Reality:

This statement is true for serials.  But not for LC monograph catalogers!  Although other title information is not a core element in ‘pure’ RDA, it is “LC Core” for monographs.  You must record it if it appears on the same source as the title proper.
