Definition

A generic title constructed by the cataloger used to collect works by a prolific author. Field 243 was used for preferred titles of a collective nature (e.g., Works) that are not distinctive enough for an added title access point. The Library of Congress (LC) does not use field 243. LC enters such preferred titles in field 240.

Prefer use of field 240 in place of field 243 when entering or replacing data in WorldCat master bibliographic records.

Do not enter field 243 and field 130 or field 240 in the same record.
