245 - Title Statement - MARC21

245 - Title Statement (Non Repeatable)

Title and statement of responsibility area of the bibliographic description of a work.

Title proper is the chief name of a resource.  It is the focus for identifying the preferred source of information.  An alternative title is treated as part of the title proper.  The title proper excludes any parallel titles proper, other title information, and parallel other title information. 

Field 245 contains the title, other title information and statement of responsibility, as well as the numerical designation of a part or section and the name of a part or section. The title is recorded exactly as to wording, spelling and diacritical marks, but not necessarily as to order and punctuation.

Source of Information

If the information does not appear on a source forming part of the resource itself, take it from one of the following sources (in order of preference):
a)      accompanying material (e.g., a leaflet, an “about” file)
b)      a container that is not issued as part of the resource itself (e.g., a box, case made by the owner)
c)      other published descriptions of the resource
d)     any other available source (e.g., a reference source)

In RDA when there is no title provided within the resource itself, it may be taken from an external source with the appropriate note added. A statement of responsibility appearing in any area of the resource may be transcribed. Information from outside of the resource may be included, enclosed in square brackets.

In AACR2 the chief source of information is the title page. If there is no title page, use the part of the item supplying the most complete information, whether this is the cover (excluding a book jacket), half title page, caption, colophon, running title or other part. If information traditionally given on the title page is given on facing pages without repetition or with only partial repetition, consider these pages together as the chief source. Do not combine separate title pages or added title pages. When no statement of responsibility is given on the chief source, but information appears prominently on the title page verso, pages preceding the title page, or cover, the information is transcribed as remainder of title and enclosed in square brackets.

Subfield Codes
$a - Title (NR) 
$b - Remainder of title (NR) 
$c - Statement of responsibility, etc. (NR) 
$f - Inclusive dates (NR) 
$g - Bulk dates (NR) 
$h - Medium (NR)
$k - Form (R) 
$n - Number of part/section of a work (R) 
$p - Name of part/section of a work (R) 
$s - Version (NR) 
$6 - Linkage (NR) 
$8 - Field link and sequence number (R)

‡a Title - The title proper and alternative title, excluding the designation of the number or name of a part. Use also for the first title of separate works (by the same or different authors/composers) in a collection lacking a collective title.

‡b Remainder of title - The remainder of the title information. The data includes parallel titles, titles subsequent to the first (in terms lacking a collective title), and other title information. Do not repeat subfield ‡b when more than one parallel title, subsequent title, and/or other title information is given in the field.

‡c Statement of responsibility, etc.  - The first statement of responsibility and/or remaining data in the field that has not been coded in one of the other subfields. Once subfield ‡c has been recorded, no further subfield coding of field 245 is possible.

‡n Number of part/section of a work - The number designation for a part/section of a work used in a title. Numbering is defined as an indication of sequencing in any form (e.g., Book two, Part 1, or Supplement A). Multiple numberings for a part/section are contained in a single subfield ‡n. Separate multiple numberings with a comma. In music titles, the serial, opus, or thematic index numbers are generally not contained in subfield ‡n.

‡p Name of part/section of a work - A name designation of a part/section of a work.
In records formulated according to ISBD principles, subfield ‡p follows a period ( . ) when it is preceded by subfield ‡a, subfield ‡b, or another subfield ‡p. Subfield ‡p follows a comma ( , ) when it follows subfield ‡n.
