7xx Introduction

 

7xx fields

Use fields 700–730 to provide additional access to a bibliographic record from names and/or titles having various relationships to the item you are cataloging. Added entries are made for persons, corporate bodies and meetings having some form of responsibility for the creation of the work. This includes intellectual and publishing responsibilities.

Use fields 700–730 also for added entries for other titles under authority control related to the work for which the record is made (e.g., other editions). Added entries are assigned to records for persons, corporate bodies, meetings and titles which are not given access through subject or series entries.

Use field 740 (Added Entry–Uncontrolled Related/Analytical Title) for a title not under authority control for a part of the item being cataloged or a related item.

Use fields 752–754 to provide access to an item through other aspects of its content or description.

Use fields 76x–78x for linking entries for related items. These fields identify the relationship between bibliographic items.

Use fields 790–793 for added entries not supported by the other cataloging rules.

Current cataloging

If you are inputting current cataloging, construct entries according to Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules, second edition (AACR2) and Library of Congress (LC) practice. Search the OCLC Authority File to verify forms of entry.

Use current LC-AACR2 or AACR2-compatible forms of names and uniform titles. If the current LC-AACR2 or AACR2-compatible form is unknown, construct the heading according to AACR2 1998 rev. and the Library of Congress Rule Interpretations (LCRIs).

Retrospective cataloging

If you are inputting retrospective cataloging, search the OCLC Authority File to verify forms of entry.

Use current LC-AACR2 or AACR2-compatible forms of names and uniform titles. If the current LC-AACR2 or AACR2-compatible form is unknown, you may enter the pre-AACR2 form, but you are encouraged to construct the heading according to AACR2 and the LCRIs.

See section 2.2, " Transcribing Pre-AACR2 Copy," for more information.
