DACS states that “It is a local decision which names, terms, and concepts found in a description will be included as formal access points.” These fields display as ‘Author’ in HOLLIS OPAC. Briefly, access points have already been mentioned in the >520, and >351 fields.  Entries can be made for some of these:

1.     Names of others that are authors or recipients within a collection.

2.     Other important associated names, according to circumstances, as described in the text of the record, using relator terms as necessary, i.e.: ‘copyist’, ‘annotator’, ‘former owner.’

Use subfield $$e relator term.          

Use these terms if appropriate, selecting from the relator term list in the Cataloger’s Desktop and on the MARC Code List for Relators This list displays full words and three letter abbreviated codes. Use only the full words. 

Some possible terms are:















Other lists of relator terms are available in the RDA cataloging data. Any appropriate relator term may be used at cataloger’s discretion. 


700   Added entry – personal name.  

[updated 05/09/2014]

Note: that if a name has already appeared as a main entry (i.e., in a >1xx field), it should not reappear as an added 7xx entry. For example, in a record for correspondence, an added entry with the relator term $$e correspondent should be made for persons not named in the >100, but no additional entry will be made to indicate that the person in the main entry is the recipient of some letters as well as the writer of others.

When there are multiple 700s, arrange them alphabetically. 

Punctuation: end each subfield with a mark of punctuation.

$$e    relator term. We often use $$e recipient or $$e correspondent to delineate why the name is here when referring to letters. If the name is a correspondent and an author, just enter the name as a plain 700 with no relator code. 

$$j    Attribution qualifier. "Attribution information for names when the responsibility is unknown, uncertain, fictitious, or pseudonymous. Qualifiers should be used that follow the name of a known artist for the work." [Most often used for artists.]

730   Added entry – uniform title. 

[updated 9/25/2006]

Uniform titles bring together records for the same work when different manifestations (e.g. translations) appear under different titles.
