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

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


Wrong.  RDA 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.
