7xx added entries

Introduction | Copy Cataloging Instructions | Reference Information and Examples

 

Introduction  

 

The 7XX fields are used to provide access in the catalog for additional names and titles that have a relationship to the book being cataloged.  There are three main types of relationships recorded in these fields.  The first relationship is one of intellectual or publishing responsibility.  There are two main reasons the name of a person or group responsible for a work would appear in a 7XX field instead of a 1XX field (see 1XX Main Entry for more information about the 1XX fields).  The first is that there are multiple authors, and in this case, the first-named author appears in the 1XX, with the others recorded in the 7XX.  The second is that no individual or group is considered to have primary responsibility for the work, in which case there is no 1XX field, and parties with some responsibility are recorded in the 7XX.   

 

The second type of relationship that may be recorded in the 7XX fields is an analytical relationship, i.e., the titles recorded in the 7XX fields are the titles of individual works contained in the book being cataloged.  For example, a book containing 3 plays may give their individual titles in the 7XX fields. 

 

A third type of relationship that may be recorded in the 7XX fields is a relationship to an item external to the book being cataloged.  For instance, The Better Homes & Gardens Cookbook may have an added entry for the magazine Better Homes & Gardens.  Additional examples are located in the Reference Information and Examples section of this document.

 

The 700, 710, 711, and 730 fields are used for names and titles under authority control, while the 740 is used for titles that are not.  The 7XX fields other than those discussed in this document are not commonly used in cataloging books.

In book cataloging, names and titles entered in 7XX fields must be justified by appearing in the bibliographic description (fields 245-5XX).

Reference Information and Examples

Determine access points for an item from its chief source (or chief source substitute) and from statements appearing prominently. If necessary, consult other parts of the item, or sources outside the item (LCRI 21.0B).

 

700 Personal Name / 710 Corporate Name / 711 Conference Name Added Entry

 

These fields contain controlled (authorized) added entries for names (personal, corporate, or meeting) relevant to the book in hand.  The names and works entered in these fields are controlled through an authority file or another bibliographic record.

2nd indicator.  Type of added entry.

Common Subfields

 

Subfield t (for 700, 710, 711)

 

Title of a work. This subfield contains the uniform title, title page title, or series title connected to the entry in subfield |a.  When the title begins with an article, omit the initial article. 

 

700:1_ : |a Walker, Alice, |d 1944- . |t Color purple.

710:2_: |a Southern Methodist University. |b Student's Association. |t Student handbook.

Subfield codes for the 700/710/711 fields are specific to the type of added entry.  Refer to the OCLC Bibliographic Formats and Standards, 7XX for more information.

 

730 Uniform Title Added Entry

 

Use the 730 field for controlled (authorized) uniform titles used as added entries.  A controlled title is a title appearing in the 1XX of an authority record or as the main entry on another bibliographic record.  For more information about uniform titles, see 1XX Main Entry (Personal, Corporate and Conference Names).

 

Indicators

 

1st indicator. Nonfiling characters.  Follow LC practice and do not enter any initial article.

            Use first indicator 0 (zero).

 

2nd indicator. Type of added entry

blank    No information provided

2                    Analytical entry.  Use this when the access point being provided is for a work that is contained in the item being cataloged.

 

Examples

·         Periodical title (relationship to an external item):

245:00: |a House & garden second home guide

            730:0_: |a House & garden.                                          

·         Anonymous work title (relationship to an external item):

            730 02  |a Tarski's world (computer program). |f 1991.

 

740 Added Entry—Uncontrolled Related/Analytical Title

 

Use the 740 field for uncontrolled related titles (external to the work in hand) and uncontrolled analytical titles (of independent works contained within the item).  Commonly, the 740 is used for situations in which the title external to the work has a title main entry (no 1XX fields), or when a 700 |t, 710 |t, or 711 |t does not provide adequate access to a work. 

 

In the past, the 740 field was used for variant titles for the item (as the 246 is currently used).  Accept incoming copy that uses the 740 field for this purpose.  Also, CUL copy will sometimes contain 740s that duplicate 700 |t, 710 |t, and 711 |t.  These entries were added to overcome search problems in Voyager, but are no longer necessary.  It is not necessary to modify these records.
