On the OPAC this displays as “Title:” above the title you enter in the 245. A main entry as uniform title is used when there is no clear authorship and the work has appeared under varying titles, or is a translation, necessitating that a particular title be chosen to represent the work. Use this field when the work is entered directly under the title and additions or deletions to the title proper must be accommodated. This field is used for manuscripts of sacred scriptures and certain other anonymous classics. For cataloguing rules concerning the Bible, see AACR2 25.18.
When there is clear authorship and another 1XX field can be used legitimately, titles requiring uniformity should be entered in the 240.
