RDA Cataloging Examples for Creating Variant Titles for Portion of Title Proper - Best Practices


Watch this video on YouTube on Resource Description & Access (RDA) Channel of RDA Blog


  • For titles proper that contain an alternative title, ensure title access to the complete title proper to the first part of the title proper up-to the word "or" or equivalent in another language that signals an alternative title and to the part following the word "or" or its equivalent in another language.
  • If the title proper contains a part or designation of a part, or both, make a variant title usually for the part when it is judged intelligible enough to be a likely candidate for access.
  • Make a variant title for a portion of a title proper, when it is judged that some user would consider the portion as the title proper.
