Recording Statement of Responsibility : LC-PCC Best Practices Guidelines

“You may not omit persons, families, or corporate bodies from a statement of responsibility.”


Generally, this is true for monographs -- and it is the preferred practice, according to LC-PCC PS  But in exceptional cases, if the statement names a burdensome number of entities, you may record the first and indicate the omission by summarizing what has been omitted, e.g. “[and eleven others].”

“ ‘Burdensome’ is defined in RDA as ‘more than 3 entities or more than 12 parts of a table of contents.’


Wrong!  “Burdensome” is not defined in RDA or the LC-PCC PS.  Use cataloger judgment.
