  • THE BRITISH LIBRARY GUIDE TO RDA NAME AUTHORITY RECORDS A Guide to Best Practice for RDA Name Authority records in NACO (including 2013 and 2014 changes)

    INTRODUCTION

    This guide describes British Library best practice for the creation of RDA name authority records. It results both from discussions with the Library of Congress, and from the contributions of many cataloguers in weekly RDA policy review meetings over a period of months, without whom the guide would not have been possible.

    This guide should be read in conjunction with the LC-PCC-PS , and DCM: Descriptive Cataloging Manual, Z1. Name and Series Authority Records (Cataloger's Desktop login required).

    Queries concerning this Guide may be directed to richard.moore@bl.uk

    This Guide was updated in July 2013 and in May 2014, to reflect changes to RDA, and contains notes on Qualifiers in Access Points Requiring RDA Review.

    Scope (9.0 , 9.0 )

    In RDA, the term person refers to an individual or an identity established by an individual (either alone or in collaboration with one or more other individuals) (8.1.2 ).

    There are two significant changes from AACR2:

    • Persons include fictitious entities having roles as creators or contributors (9.0 ).

    • Persons include real non-human entities having roles as creators or contributors (9.0 ).

    When RDA was implemented, LCSH were still used for fictitious entities and non-human entities when they appeared as subjects. This policy has changed, and RDA name authorities can now be used for creators, contributors, or subjects. Please see 9.0 . BL practice is always to create an RDA name authority, and to ask for a corresponding LCSH to be deleted if one exists.

    Preferred Name for the Person (9.2.2 )

    In Authorized Access Points.

    In RDA, The Preferred Name for the Person (9.2.2 ) is the name or form of name chosen as the basis for the authorized access point representing that person. There are only a few changes from AACR2:

    • If variant spellings are found, that are not the result of different transliterations, choose the form in the first resource received (9.2.2.5.4 ) .

    • Words, etc., indicating relationships, such as Jr. and Sr., are treated as part of the preferred name (9.2.2.9.5 ), and always recorded if present.
