Establishing Certain Entities in the Name or Subject Authority File : RDA Cataloging

Subject Headings Manual — Name vs. Subject Authority File — H 405 Establishing Certain Entities in the Name or Subject Authority (Revised)

1. General rule. Whenever a new heading is needed for a named entity, consult the two lists on pp. 5-13 to determine whether the heading is categorized as a Group 1 or Group 2 heading. Follow the procedures appropriate to the group. If neither the precise category, nor a broader category that encompasses the precise category, nor a very closely analogous category is found in either of the two groups, bring the matter to the attention of the Policy and Standards Division (PSD) for an interpretation and possible addition of the category to one of the lists. 
GROUP ONE - NAME AUTHORITY GROUP HEADINGS: Named entities always established according to descriptive cataloging conventions with authority records that always reside in the name authority file.

GROUP TWO - SUBJECT AUTHORITY GROUP HEADINGS: Named entities always established according to subject cataloging conventions with authority records that reside in either the name authority file or the subject authority file.

2.  Group one headings.  First search to determine whether the required heading has already been established as an RDA name heading.  If so, use the heading as established.  If not, establish it as a name heading or request a descriptive cataloger to do so.

If a heading in this category has been established as a subject heading, submit a proposal to delete the subject authority record according to the procedures in H 193 after it has been established it as a name heading.

3.  Group two headings.

a.  Heading required for subject cataloging purposes.  First search to determine whether the entity has already been established as a name heading according to former guidelines.  After making this determination, proceed as follows:
(1) Name authority record not found.  Submit a proposal to establish the entity as a subject heading, following the standard procedures described in H 200, as well as any special procedures described in individual instruction sheets appropriate to particular categories of named entities, for example, H 1334 for buildings and structures, H 1925 for parks, etc. 
Proposals of this type appear in the main alphabetical section of the tentative list and are treated as subject headings.
(2) RDA or AACR2 name authority record found.  If the record does not have a 667 field with the notation Subj Headings Manual/RDA, consult the Policy and Standards Division to determine whether it should be canceled as a name heading and re-established as a subject heading.
(3) Pre-AACR2 name authority record foundSubmit a proposal to establish it as a subject heading, as described in sec. 1.a., above.  Notify the Policy and Standards Division of the invalid name heading so that the name authority record can be deleted.
b.  Heading needed for use as descriptive access point.  Follow the guidelines in the Descriptive Cataloging Manual, Z1, Appendix 1: Ambiguous Entities, sec. 1.2.(e) and sec. 3.1.
