Definition:

The uniform title identifies an item if it has appeared under varying titles. It brings together records for items entered under both personal and corporate names and bearing variant titles. Use for uniform titles that follow the main entry ( field 100, field 110 or field 111). Use field 130 for uniform titles that are the main entry.

For current cataloging, construct uniform titles according to AACR2 and LC practice. Search the OCLC Authority File to verify forms of entry. Use the current AACR2 or AACR2-compatible form of entry. If that form is unknown, construct the heading according to AACR2.

For retrospective cataloging, search the OCLC Authority File to verify forms of entry. Use the current AACR2 or AACR2-compatible form of entry. If that form is unknown, you may enter the pre-AACR2 form, but you are encouraged to construct the heading according to AACR2.
