Definition

Together with the name in fields 100, 110, or 111, the preferred title forms the authorized access point that identifies an item especially if it has appeared under varying titles. It also distinguishes similar works and expressions. Use field 130 for the preferred title that forms the authorized access point when no name is appropriate.

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