Providing Greater Flexibility in Creating Variant Access Points (RDA Chapters 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, and 11)

Abstract:
In Chapters 5-6, change the basis for variant access points for works and expressions from a “variant title for the work” to “a title of the work”. In Chapters 8-11, change the basis for variant access points for persons, families and corporate bodies from “a variant name for the [person/family/corporate body]” to “a name of the [person/family/corporate body]”. Update related references and instruction names in the text.
