Recording Statement of Responsibility : LC-PCC Best Practices Guidelines

Myth:
“You must always record the statement of responsibility exactly as it appears, including all degrees, titles, and affiliations.”

Reality:

Generally, yes -- and this is the preferred practice for monographs.  But not necessarily.  LC-PCC PS 2.4.1.4 says to “generally” not abridge a statement of responsibility.  But if the statement of responsibility contains a burdensome amount of such information, you may abridge it, provided no essential information is lost.
