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

Myth:
“Other title information may be recorded in brackets if it appears on a source other than the same source for the title proper.”

Reality:

Wrong.  RDA 2.3.4.2 explicitly states “Take other title information from the same source as the title proper.”  If it appears elsewhere, you may record it in a note, but should not include it in the title area -- not even with brackets.
