Name/Title NAR (Name Authority Record) in RDA : Questions & Answers : RDA Examples


QUESTION: I have to create a N/T NAR for selections of stories of an author, but the NAR for the author is established in AACR2. How to create N/T NAR in this case, can we establish N/T NAR straightaway in RDA?
ANSWER: In order to create a Name/Title Name Authority Record (NAR) for a MARC21 240 tag in Resource Description & Access (RDA), the base  Name Authority Record (NAR) for the person has to be also in RDA first. If the base NAR for the person is in AACR2, then it should be converted to RDA. For example, please see lccn: 2012350684

Identifying RDA Records

There are two indications that a record is an RDA bibliographic record:
  • Leader/18 contains the value “i” (ISBD punctuation included) 

  • Field 040 $e contains the code “rda”
