RDA Cataloging Rules for Pseudonyms with MARC 21 Examples


Definition
PseudonymA name used by a person (either alone or in collaboration with others) that is not the person’s real name. (RDA Toolkit Glossary)
PseudonymA name assumed by an author to conceal or obscure his or her identity. (AACR2 Glossary) 


RDA Cataloging Rules for Pseudonyms


Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) on Library of Congress / Program for Cooperative Cataloging practice for creating Name Authority Records (NARs) for persons who use Pseudonyms:

Q1. How many NARs are needed for contemporary persons who use pseudonyms

Q2. How do I decide which name to choose as the basic heading when creating NARs for a person with multiple pseudonyms? (DCM Z1 663— Complex see-also reference—Names)

Q3. Is it required to make a NAR for every pseudonym associated with a contemporary person? Some persons purport to have ten or more pseudonyms but in my catalog we only have works under one or two of those names – are there limits set on the number of NARs required? (DCM Z1 667 Cataloger Note section) 

Q4. Should the 663 note technique also be used in a corporate name NAR when providing 500 see-also references for the members of a group? (RDA Chapter 30) 

Q5. Can the 663 note be used without coding the 500 field with subfield $w nnnc? (MARC 21 Format for Authority Records, 663 field)

Q6. What about creating NARs for non-contemporary persons? Where is the guidance? 

Q7. What about different real names used concurrently by authors? 

Q8. How do I handle a situation when a pseudonym conflicts with another name and there is no information to add to either name to differentiate them? Do I create an undifferentiated NAR (or add the name to an undifferentiated NAR if it already exists)? Do I add the prescribed 663 note as well as the 500 coded “nnnc” to the undifferentiated NAR?

Q9. How do I handle LC classification numbers: Do I add the same LCC (053) on each NAR of a pseudonym? What if the pseudonym is used on non-literary works?

Title and Statement of Responsibility in RDA with MARC 21 Examples

Other Title Information
Variant Titles
Earlier Title Proper and Later Title Proper
Statement of Responsibility   
   “Rule of Three” -- Change from AACR2!

<<<<<---------->>>>>


Title Proper

Ø         Title proper is a CORE ELEMENT

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. 

This data is recorded in MARC field 245 $a $n $p

P         Look at instruction 2.3.2

Sources:           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)

Title Proper Transcription
P         Look at instruction 2.3.1.4
·         Transcribe a title as it appears on the source of information.  Apply the general guidelines on transcription given in 1.7.
·         Do not correct errors for monographs.
·         Do not record “[sic]” or [i.e., …]”; instead, give a note to explain.
·         Do correct errors for serials and integrating resources.

Examples:
      AACR2 record for a monograph:
            245 $a Teusday’s [i.e. Tuesday’s] tasks
      RDA record for this monograph:
            245 $a Teusday’s tasks
      246 $i Corrected title: $a Tuesday’s tasks

      RDA record for a serial:
            245 $a Zoology studies
      246 $i Misspelled title on number 1: $a Zooology studies 


Parallel Title Proper


Ø         Parallel title proper is a CORE ELEMENT for LC

A parallel title proper is the title proper in another language and/or script. An alternative title in another language and/or script is treated as part of the parallel title proper.  An original title in a language different from that of the title proper that is presented as the equivalent of the title proper is treated as a parallel title proper.

This data is recorded in MARC field 245 $b

P         Look at instruction 2.3.3

Sources:           The source for parallel title proper has been expanded to include any source within the resource.

Record a parallel title proper applying the basic instructions on recording titles given under 2.3.1. 

Ø    Remember that 2.3.1 instructs you to “Transcribe a title as it appears on the source of information. Apply the general guidelines on transcription given under 1.7.




Other Title Information


Ø         Other title information is a CORE ELEMENT for LC

Other title information is information that appears in conjunction with, and is subordinate to, the title proper of a resource. It may include any phrase appearing with a title proper that is indicative of the character, contents, etc., of the resource or the motives for, or occasion of, its production, publication, etc. Other title information includes subtitles, avant-titres, etc., but does not include variations on the title proper such as spine titles, sleeve titles, etc. or designations and/or names of parts, sections, or supplements. Other title information may be supplied for cartographic resources and moving image resources.

This data is recorded in MARC field 245 $b

P         Look at instruction 2.3.4

Record other title information appearing on the same source of information as the title proper applying the basic instructions on recording titles given under 2.3.1.




Variant Titles


2.3.6 addresses variant titles, and LCPS 2.3.6.3 provides important guidance on the recording of variant titles in the MARC record. This LCPS is very similar to RI 21.30J.



Earlier Title Proper and Later Title Proper


For integrating resources, serials, or multipart monographs, there are sometimes earlier or later titles proper which relate to changes of the title proper of the same resource over time.  Instructions for these situations are in 2.3.7 and 2.3.8.



Statement of Responsibility


Ø         Statement of responsibility relating to title proper is a CORE ELEMENT. If there is more than one statement of responsibility relating to the title proper, only the first is required. Other statements of responsibility are optional.

A statement of responsibility is a statement relating to the identification and/or function of any persons, families, or corporate bodies responsible for the creation of, or contributing to the realization of, the intellectual or artistic content of a resource.

This data is recorded in MARC field 245 $c

P         Look at instruction 2.4.1

Sources:           Take statements of responsibility relating to title proper from the following sources (in order of preference):
a)   the same source as the title proper
b)   another source within the resource itself
c)   one of the other sources of information specified under 2.2.4

Square brackets are needed only when data is taken from outside of the resource.


Transcribe a statement of responsibility in the form in which it appears on the source of information. Apply the general guidelines on transcription given under 1.7.

LCPS 2.4.1.4 states: “Generally do not abridge a statement of responsibility.”
Example:
            Source reads:               Dr. Logan Carroll, Harvard Medical School
RDA/LCPS say:         245 … / $c Dr. Logan Carroll, Harvard Medical School.
RDA allows:               245 … / $c Dr. Logan Carroll.

“Rule of Three” -- Change from AACR2!
 P         Look at LCPS 2.4.1.5

The AACR2 “Rule of Three” is not part of RDA.  RDA 2.4.1.5 directs you to record the persons, families, or corporate bodies named in the resource.  It is only an option to omit all but the first of each group and indicate the omission by summarizing (in English) what has been omitted (do not record “[et al.]”).
Ø         However, LC does not generally apply this option. The LCPS clearly states:
“Generally do not omit names in a statement of responsibility.”

Example:
Source reads:                           by Susan Brown, Melanie Carlson, Stephen Lindell, Kevin Ott, and Janet Wilson.
AACR2:                      245 $a … / $c by Susan Brown … [et al.].
RDA allows:               245 $a … / $c by Susan Brown [and four others].
RDA/LCPS say:         245 $a … / $c by Susan Brown, Melanie Carlson, Stephen Lindell, Kevin Ott, and Janet Wilson.

More Than One Statement of Responsibility
RDA 2.4.2:

“If more than one statement of responsibility relating to title proper appears on the source of information, only the first recorded is required.”
