  • This is the first time I’m teaching this class, so any feedback will be greatly appreciated.
  • AACR2 was mainly meant to handle books. Chapter 10 relates to three-dimensional objects, but it’s still sort of within the framework of rules set up for print materials. Thus, a lot of cataloger’s judgment is needed. In a way, what’s hard is also what’s fun. Also, we can all learn from each other’s experiences. I’d like to promote sharing of ideas in this class.
  • Here are the descriptions from OCLC’s Bibliographic Formats and Standards about the four type codes that can be used for visual materials.
  • Questions on Section 1?
  • Some of these we will just touch on, as there is nothing different about them when used for three-dimensional objects.
  • Questions about section 2?
  • Of the title fields, we are just going to talk about 245 and 246.
  • Notice the phrase “chief source of information”
  • Information on the item itself is preferred to information from accompanying material, but it all counts as the chief source of information.
  • No punctuation between title proper and GMD.
  • Usually, a subtitle will be the other title information. Precede a subtitle with space colon space.
  • Space slash space before the statement of responsibility.
  • 1 = title added entry, 0 = no title added entry
  • 245 always ends with period. Questions about title and statement of responsibility?
  • Varying form of the title can also include portions of the title.
  • Varying form of the title can also include portions of the title. Don’t include initial articles, since there is no way to indicate nonfiling characters with this field.
  • Questions about varying title?
  • Questions about edition area?
  • This is the only area where the rules are unique to chapter 10.
  • Abbreviationsfor state are given in AACR2.Same rules as far as place in your own country first.
  • Abbreviationsfor state are given in AACR2.Same rules as far as place in your own country first.
  • This is the only area where the rules are unique to chapter 10.Abbreviations for state are given in AACR2.Same rules as far as place in your own country first.
  • It sometimes can be difficult to tell which company fulfills which role. Some research might be involved.
  • Questions about publication area?
  • Some of these we will just touch on, as there is nothing different about them when used for three-dimensional objects.
  • You’ve probably noticed that although the same terms are used they mean different things for different types of items.
  • You don’t have to list all of the pieces here; you can list them in a note later.
  • Questions about physical description area?
  • You probably won’t see a series statement too often with three-dimensional objects.
  • Questions about series area?
  • There are others in AACR2, but these are the ones that we are going to look at today.
  • “to be used to name or explain the form of the item as necessary.”
  • If you want to make an added entry, the information has to be in the record.
  • Objective summary
  • Only include an audience note if the audience is stated on the item.
  • Notes end in punctuation.
  • Sometimes, indicators are defined for these fields, but they generate display constants not usually seen in realia records. Questions about notes?
  • Main entries and added entries are covered in AACR2, Chapter 21, Choice of Access Points.
  • Questions about main and added entries?
  • Questions about subject headings?
  • Questions about control fields?
  • I would add that to a certain extent, “consistently” = “correctly”. Be consistent in how you catalog items of the same type, so your patrons will know what to expect from your catalog.
  • Remember to fill out evaluation forms.
