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.

<<<<<=====>>>>>

Note: Please supply cases and solutions quoting proper RDA rules where date of publication not identified. It will be included in this table along with name of the cataloger. Write your suggestions in the "comments" section of this blog post.

<<<<<=====>>>>>

A. If an item lacking a publication date contains only a copyright date, apply the following in the order listed:

A.1. Supply a date of publication that corresponds to the copyright date, in square brackets, if it seems reasonable to assume that date is a likely publication date.

A.2. If the copyright date is for the year following the year in which the publication is received, supply a date of publication that corresponds to the copyright date.

B. If an item lacking a publication date contains a copyright date and a date of manufacture and the year is the same for both, supply a date of publication that corresponds to that date, in square brackets, if it seems reasonable to assume that date is a likely publication date.

C. If an item lacking a publication date contains a copyright date and a date of manufacture and the years differ, supply a date of publication that corresponds to the copyright date, in square brackets, if it seems reasonable to assume that date is a likely publication date. A manufacture date may also be recorded as part of a manufacture statement, or recorded as part of a Note on issue, part, or iteration used as the basis for identification of a resource (See 2.17.13), if determined useful by the cataloger.

D. If an item lacking a publication date contains only a date of distribution, apply the following in the order listed:

D.1. Supply a date of publication that corresponds to the distribution date, in square brackets, if it seems reasonable to assume that date is a likely publication date. Also record a date of distribution as part of a distribution statement if determined useful by the cataloger.

D.2. If it does not seem reasonable to assume that the distribution date is a likely publication date, supply a date of publication, in square brackets, based on the information provided. Also record the distribution date as part of a distribution statement if determined useful by the cataloger.

E. If an item lacking a publication date contains only a date of manufacture, apply the following in the order listed:

E.1. Supply a date of publication that corresponds to the manufacture date, in square brackets, if it seems reasonable to assume that date is a likely publication date. For books, this means that the item is assumed to be the first printing of the edition. Also record the manufacture date as part of a manufacture statement if determined useful by the cataloger.

E.2. If the date of manufacture given implies that it is not likely the same as the date of publication, supply a date of publication, in square brackets, using the information provided. A manufacture date may also be recorded as part of a manufacture statement, or recorded as part of a Note on issue, part, or iteration used as the basis for identification of a resource (See 2.17.13), if determined useful by the cataloger.
