Appendix F version 8

Page history last edited by Margaret Nichols 9 years, 6 months ago

Appendix F. Title Access Points

 

[Under consideration: Add a title for the original, either a 240 or 740, to give title access to the original (see minutes). Folger does this]

 

F1. Introduction

 

 

Title access plays an important role in enabling users to identify and locate special collections materials. While some title access will be handled by controlled forms, this appendix lists specific situations, commonly encountered by rare materials catalogers, in which the provision of uncontrolled title access points is likely to be useful.

 

 

The appendix is not intended as an exhaustive list of all instances in which uncontrolled title access points may be made. Use judgment in determining which forms of access will be most useful for the item in hand. In general, do not include access points that duplicate normalized forms of existing title access points (e.g., the title proper, a uniform title, etc.). Take the indexing capabilities of the institution's local system into consideration when determining whether the additional access points are needed.

 

 

F2. Rules relevant to the provision of title access points

 

 

The list is presented in DCRM(B) rule number order. Change to DCRM(MSS) rule number order? Title access points considered optional are labeled as such.

Provide access for the entire title proper exactly as transcribed, disregarding initial articles as required by filing rules.

If any of the first five words in the title proper contains a letter i/j/u/v that has been converted to uppercase or lowercase according to a pattern of usage that follows pre-modern spelling conventions, provide additional title access for the form of the title proper that corresponds to modern orthography (i.e., using i and u for vowels, j and v for consonants, and w for consonantal vv).

 

 

If it differs from title access points already provided, also provide title access for the form of the title proper that corresponds to the graphical appearance of the letters in the source, converting the letters i/j/u/v into uppercase or lowercase without regard for the pattern of usage in the publication manuscript being described.
