Title in More Than One Language or Script in RDA

Question: Which title to choose as the Title Proper if the title statement of a polyglot monograph appears in multiple languages, according to Resource Description & Access (RDA) Cataloging Rules? 

[Question asked on the Google+ Community RDA Cataloging, a companion Google+ Community for RDA Blog.] 

RESOURCE DESCRIPTION & ACCESS RDA


Answer: According to RDA Rule 2.3.2.4 if the content of the resource is written, spoken, or sung and the source of information for the title proper has a title in more than one language or script then choose as the title proper the title in the language or script of the main content of the resource. This rule further prescribes that, If the content of the resource is not written, spoken, or sung, or if there is no main content in a single language then the cataloger should choose the title proper on the basis of the sequence, layout, or typography of the titles on the source of information.

All the librarians / catalogers are invited to join RDA Cataloging. It is an online community/group/forum for library and information science students, professionals and cataloging & metadata librarians. It is a place where people can get together to share ideas, trade tips and tricks, share resources, get the latest news, and learn about Resource Description and Access (RDA), a new cataloging standard to replace AACR2, and other issues related to cataloging and metadata

Edition in RDA & AACR2 Cataloging with MARC 21 Examples

Resource Description & Access RDA

Edition

  • Designation of edition and designation of a named revision of an edition are CORE ELEMENTS. Other sub-elements of edition statements are optional.
An edition statement is a statement identifying the edition to which a resource belongs. An edition statement may also include a designation of a named revision of an edition. An edition statement may also include a statement or statements of responsibility relating to the edition and/or to a named revision of an edition.

This data is recorded in MARC field 250

  • Look at instruction 2.5.1
Transcribe an edition statement as it appears on the source of information. Apply the general guidelines on transcription given under 1.7.  Following various LCPS in 1.7 and 1.8 leads you to always transcribe the data as found.  Appendix B4 says, “For transcribed elements, use only those abbreviations found in the sources of information for the element.”

Examples:
Source reads:   Third revised edition
AACR2 says:  250 $a 3rd rev. ed.
RDA says:       250 $a Third revised edition

Source reads:   2nd enlarged ed., revised
AACR2 says:  2nd enl. ed., rev.           
RDA says:       2nd enlarged ed., revised


Recording Changes in Edition Statement (2.20.4.5)

·         If edition statements differ from one part of a multipart monograph to another, make a note if the difference is considered to be important for identification or access.

  • For serials, if an edition statement is added, deleted, or changed on a subsequent issue or part of a serial, make a note if the change is important for identification or access.
  • For integrating resources, change the edition statement to reflect the current iteration if the change does not require a new description.  However, if the earlier edition statement is considered to be important, make a note for the earlier statement.
