Area 4 errata

Page history last edited by Deborah J. Leslie 4 years, 6 months ago Saved with comment

Key:

  • Rule numbering and titles taken from DCRM(B) first printing 
  • Module code in parentheses before rule number indicates location of original text to be changed; module code after description of needed change indicates that the change has been made in that module; module code after plus "n/a" means change has been verified as not applicable to that module
  • Because subsequent printings are based on an entirely new text supplied by BSC but Cataloger's Desktop is updated manually, there is occasionally a discrepancy between print and online that is to be noted and CD to be given the correction
  • Additions to text are shown underlined; deletions are shown struck through
  • Codes:
    • B, B1, B2, B3 = Books, first through third printings; "not done" indicates that the intended change was inadvertently not made (Please be aware that editing this list as a result of the 3rd printing of DCRM(B) is still in progress.) Temp: b3v
    • C = Cartographic
    • G = Graphics
    • M = Music
    • MSS = Manuscripts
    • S = Serials
    • CD = Cataloger's Desktop

 

Publication, distribution, etc.

 

4A3.3.

  1. (B3, M) Correct capitalization from "kyng[es] noble grace" to "Kyng[es] Noble Grace," according to AACR2 A.13E.1 A.13G  (C n/a)(MSS n/a)(B4)
    1. Review for capitalization. Acc. to Chicago, although 'king' and other such titles are now lower case when used alone (8.23, 8.32: e.g. the king of Jordan), honorific titles including personal pronouns  is still upper case (8.23, 5.40: e.g. Queen Elizabeth, Her Majesty the Queen of England). the Kynges Noble Grace is therefore upper case. (B4) 
  2. (B3) "transcribe them in the order found and supply missing elements and expanded brevigraphs in square brackets as needed (see 0G6 and 0G8.2). (B4)

 

4A4. Fictitious or incorrect information

(B)(S) If all information relating to the publication, distribution, etc., area appearing in the publication is known to be fictitious or incorrect, transcribe it nonetheless and make an explanatory note.

If some but not all of the information is known to be fictitious or incorrect, apply the appropriate rule.... [Approved by BSC Feb. 14, 2011; see General notes for additional change of "real" to "actual"](G, except used "element" instead of "area" because G brackets each element separately)(C)(MSS n/a)
  2. (B)(S)(G) Delete entire rule, renumber remaining rules in 4A, and adjust references to those rules throughout the text; per ISBD Consolidated Edition, we are now supplying corrections at the end of each fictitious/incorrect element rather than at the end of the area; the element-level rules that address fictitious/incorrect elements (4B9, 4C5, 4D2.4) can now suffice, so 4A4 is no longer needed. [see General Errata; also resolved by DCRM Steering Group, 1/18/14] (C)(MSS n/a)(M)(B4)

Use a modern English form of name, if there is one, and give the basis for the correction in a the note.

If the actual details are known, or can be reasonably surmised, supply a correction in square brackets and give the basis for the correction in a the note. [see General notes for change of "real" to "actual"](B3)(G)(C)(B3)(MSS n/a)

Provide an explanation for the supplied date, if possible in a note." [Change approved by BSC Dec. 7, 2010] (G)(C)(B3) (Note: Unable to verify if "in a note" was in the final text voted on, but it's in B3 as of 16 March 2013, and makes sense, so we'll keep it) (MSS n/a cf. 4C7.2)
