Definition

A uniform title used as a main entry heading. A main entry under uniform title is used when a work is entered directly under the title and the work has appeared under varying titles, necessitating that a particular title be chosen to represent the work. Cataloging rules also prescribe the use of this field when the work is entered directly under the title and additions or deletions to the title proper must be accommodated (in this case, the title may not actually vary from iteration to iteration). Use field 245 for the title that appears on the cataloged work.
  If the cataloging rules prescribe a uniform title for the cases listed below, use a 130 field:
  • Anonymous works
  • Composite manuscripts or manuscript groups
  • Concordats
  • Names of journals and newspapers
  • Radio and television programs
  • Motion pictures and videorecordings
  • Treaties and inter-governmental agreements

Do not enter field 130 in the same record with field 100, field 110 or field 111. To enter a uniform title and another main entry ( field 100, field 110 or field 111), use field 240 for the uniform title.

Serials

In addition to using field 130 for uniform titles used to collocate records, field 130 may be used in AACR2 cataloging for serial uniform titles. Use field 130 to differentiate items published under an identical title proper in some cases, as outlined in the CONSER Standard Record Guidelines ( http://www.loc.gov/catdir/cpso/conserdoc.pdf). The uniform title consists of the title proper followed by a qualifier enclosed in parentheses. The qualifier is usually the place of publication, distribution or name of the issuing body.

If the place qualifier changes (e.g., either the name of the place changes or the place of publication changes), do not change the uniform title. Continue to use the existing record. Enter the appropriate information in a note.

If the issuing-body qualifier changes (e.g., either the name of the body changes or that body ceases to be associated with the work), create a new record with a new uniform title. See the Library of Congress Rule Interpretation 25.5B

( http://www.loc.gov/catdir/cpso/currlcri.html) for guidelines about choice of qualifier.

For more information about the use of field 130, see the CONSER Standard Record Guidelines ( http://www.loc.gov/catdir/cpso/conserdoc.pdf).

1st Indicator

Nonfiling characters. The number of character positions associated with a definite or indefinite article (e.g., An or The) at the beginning of a title and that are disregarded in sorting and filing processes.

Note: Current practice is to enter the title without articles and use 1st indicator value .

 
No nonfiling characters. No initial article character positions are disregarded. Use value if the title does not begin with an article.
130   Collection africaine.

Diacritical marks or special characters at the beginning of a series statement field that does not begin with an initial article are not counted as nonfiling characters.

130   Ökonomische Studien.
 
1-9 Number of nonfiling characters present.  A field begins with a definite or indefinite article that is disregarded in sorting and filing processes. Enter the number of characters in the article, plus spaces, punctuation, diacritical marks and special characters that precede the first significant word.

Any diacritical mark or special character associated with the first filing character is not included in the count of nonfiling characters.

2nd Indicator

Undefined. The 2nd indicator position is undefined and contains a blank ( blank character ).

0 Authority record control number Subfield 0 (zero) contains the system control number of the related authority record or a standard identifier such as an International Standard Name Identifier (ISNI). The control number or identifier is preceded by the appropriate MARC Organization code (for a related authority record) or the Standard Identifier source code (for a standard identifier scheme), enclosed in parentheses. See MARC Code List for Organizations ( http://www.loc.gov/marc/organizations/orgshome.html) for a listing of organization codes and Standard Identifier Source Codes ( http://www.loc.gov/standards/sourcelist/standard-identifier.html) for code systems for standard identifiers. Subfield 0 is repeatable for different control numbers or identifiers.

Do not input subfield 0 in master records, instead use the control headings function. Local authority identifiers may be entered in subfield 0 locally, but should not be added to master records in WorldCat.
