Recording of Parallel Title : LC-PCC Best Practices Guidelines

Myth:
“A parallel title can only be recorded if it appears on the same source as the title proper.”

Reality:

No, this is the AACR2 rule.  Under RDA, the parallel title may be recorded without brackets if it appears anywhere within the resource.

In RDA a parallel title no longer has to appear on the same source as the title proper to be considered as such. For example, if the romanized title appears on the t.p. verso, it would still be considered a parallel title.
