6JSC/ALA/42
23 July 2015

Clarify Sources of Information for Statement of Responsibility Relating to Title Proper (RDA 2.4.2.2, etc.)

Abstract: Modify RDA 2.4.2.2 (Sources of Information – Statement of Responsibility Relating to Title

how to present fuller and/or additional statements of responsibility that do not appear on the

ALA Proposal: Additional instructions in Chapter 27 for Structured Descriptions of the “Contained in” and “Container of” Relationships

6JSC/ALA/41
1 August 2015

Additional instructions in Chapter 27 for Structured Descriptions of the “Contained
in” and “Container of” Relationships

Related documents:
6JSC/ALA/Discussion/3, Instructions for Recording Relationships
6JSC/ALA/45, Referential relationships: RDA Chapter 24-28 and Appendix J

 

Abstract: This proposal seeks to accomplish two things: (a) it satisfies the need for explicit instructions for
recording contents notes as structured descriptions of the container of relationship; and (b) it
provides a general structure for describing relationships. This general structure could be
extended by adding specific instructions for other types of relationships, as needed.
