LC-PCC PS for 2.2.2
PREFERRED SOURCE OF INFORMATION
Serials: Retrospective Cataloging
LC practice/PCC practice: The following are exceptions to the preferred source of information only when cataloging retrospectively and only when there are no existing records to be cancelled.
1.
If an issue has two or more different titles and the title that appears in a less preferred source is known (because of a trademark or other symbol that appears with it) to be the stable title that does not vary from issue to issue, use the source with the stable title as the preferred source of information.
2.
If two or more issues are available and the title appearing in a less preferred source remains stable from issue to issue (e.g., if the masthead title remains stable but the cover title changes from issue to issue), use the source with the stable title as the preferred source of information.
3.
If a title page is added to or dropped from issues, consider that the serial lacks a title page and identify the preferred source of information according to the priority order of sources.
Include other titles as variant titles (RDA 2.3.6) if important for identification or access.

LC practice for Alternative: Do not apply the alternative to microforms; apply the alternative to direct access electronic resources.
[2010-02]
LC-PCC PS for 2.2.4
OTHER SOURCES OF INFORMATION
LC practice/PCC practice: Use square brackets if information taken from a source outside a resource itself is supplied in any of the elements listed. However, apply the exception in this instruction if the resource is of a type that does not normally carry identifying information.
CIP Cataloging
LC practice: Use the information supplied by the publisher on the eCIP Traffic Manager's data view as the source of information for the sub elements in the Publication statement, Distribution statement, and Manufacture statement when cataloging CIPs at the galley stage. A cataloger may make any adjustment to the supplied information judged appropriate to reflect more nearly the data provided in the galley
At the CIP verification stage, adjust these statements, if necessary, according to normal sources of information instructions used for non-CIP and post-CIP cataloging.

LC-PCC PS for 2.3.1.7
TITLES OF PARTS, SECTIONS, AND SUPPLEMENTS
Monographic Series/Multipart Monograph: Title Lacking or Dependent Title
LC practice/PCC practice: When a publication in an analyzed-in-full monographic series or a part of a classified-separately multipart monograph lacks a title other than that of the comprehensive title or has a title that is dependent on the comprehensive title, prepare a separate bibliographic record for that publication or part, regardless of whether it is numbered or not. Do not apply 2.3.2.10 to devise a title proper. Apply the following guidelines for the bibliographic record.
1.
Transcribe the title proper of the monographic series or multipart monograph as the MARC 245 subfield $a.
2.
Transcribe any numbering as MARC 245 subfield $n enumeration.
3.
Transcribe a dependent title as a MARC 245 subfield $p section title.
4.
Do not record a series statement.
PCC practice:  If considered important for identification or access, provide an appropriate series authorized access point for the part to ensure that a search for a component part of the series retrieves this part (see Policy Statement for 6.27).
 
 
 
EXAMPLE
A monographic series volume
245 00 $a Studies in gypsy lore. $n Volume 25.
no 490
830 0 $a Studies in gypsy lore ; $v v. 25.
Shows optional series access point
A multipart monograph volume
245 00 $a Encyclopedia of electrochemistry. $n Volume 11, $p Index
Earlier volumes had titles sufficient to identify the resource, e.g., title of volume 1: Thermodynamics and electrified interfaces

LC-PCC PS for 2.3.2.5
TITLE IN MORE THAN ONE FORM
LC practice/PCC practice: For serials, record initialisms/acronyms of the title proper not chosen as the title proper as variant titles in MARC field 246 only, rather than as other title information. For rare serials, transcribe initialisms/acronyms of the title proper as other title information in MARC field 245 (see DCRM(S) 1B1.3, 1D) and also record in MARC field 246 for access.
[2015-07]
LC-PCC PS for 2.3.2.7
RECORDING TITLE PROPER
Nonfiling Characters
LC practice/PCC practice: Generally set the 2nd indicator position (nonfiling characters) of the MARC field 245 to disregard definite and indefinite articles for sorting and filing purposes. However, do not disregard certain articles:
1.
When the title proper begins with an article that appears as part of a personal, family, geographic, or corporate name and is retained in such a name per the instructions in RDA chapters 911, 16;
2.
When the title proper begins with an article and the context or cataloger's judgment require its retention, e.g., such titles as:
 
 
 
EXAMPLE
245 00 $a "The" as an introductory element of generic nouns
245 00 $a "El Cid" in literary criticism of the 20th century

LC-PCC PS for 2.3.2.13
MAJOR AND MINOR CHANGES IN A TITLE PROPER OF SERIALS
Application
LC practice/PCC practice: Apply RDA 1.6.2.3 and RDA 2.3.2.13 to serials (including monographic series) and to series-like phrases.
General Guidelines
LC practice/PCC practice: When deciding to update an existing serial bibliographic record or create a new description, compare the title on that issue or part to the title proper in the MARC 245 field in the serial bibliographic record.
PCC practice: When deciding to update an existing series authority record or create a new series authority record, compare the title on that issue or part to the title proper recorded in the 1XX field of the series authority record.
Multiple minor changes in the title do not equal a major change.
[2017-03]
LC-PCC PS for 2.3.2.13.1
MAJOR CHANGES
Additional Conditions for New Authorized Access Point: Subseries and the Omission/Addition of Main Series
PCC practice: When either of the situations below occurs, create a new series authority record (SAR) and link the two authorized access points via 5XX fields.
1.
The title of a main series included in an existing authorized access point is no longer present on later issues or parts.
2.
The title of a main series not included in an existing authorized access point appears on later issues or parts.
If the presence/absence of the title of the main series continues to be inconsistent, do not create additional SARs. Use the SAR for the later authorized access point and add information and variant access points as appropriate.

LC-PCC PS for RDA 2.3.2.13.2
MINOR CHANGES
LC practice/PCC practice: for minor change categories:
Category a): Consider that "one spelling vs. another" applies both in the case of ordinary orthographic variations and in the case of official orthographic changes. Consider that "a change in grammatical form" includes singular vs. plural, adjective vs. noun, and genitive vs. nominative case.
Category c): If the change is in the name of a body that is part of the title proper and the change requires the creation of a new heading for the body (see RDA 11.2.2.6), consider such a change to be a major change. Consider the presence or absence of the name or title of the official of the body to be a minor change. Consider the presence or absence of the body to whom a publication is presented to be a minor change.
Category e): Also apply this category when the title is given in more than one script. Do not consider there to be a major change even if the addition of the title in another language or script on a later issue would affect the choice of title proper if the description were based on that issue. However, consider that there has been a major change if there is evidence that the publisher intentionally changed the title; such evidence may include, for example, a statement by the publisher or a new ISSN printed on the publication.
Category g): Also apply this category when the language of the title varies according to the language of the text. However, consider that there has been a major change if there is evidence that the publisher intentionally changed the title; such evidence may include, for example, a statement by the publisher or a new ISSN printed on the publication.
Category h): Consider that "a list" means at least three terms.
Category i): The change from one word to another (e.g., the change from "magazine" to "journal") is a major change. The word "series" does indicate a type of resource. A word denoting frequency (e.g., "monthly") does not indicate a type of resource.
Additional Minor Change Categories
LC practice/PCC practice for Session laws of the U.S. states: Consider all changes in the title proper to be minor changes and do not create new descriptions.
LC practice/PCC practice for 17th-19th century U.S. almanacs: Generally, consider all changes in the title proper to be minor changes and do not create new descriptions.

LC-PCC PS for 2.3.3
PARALLEL TITLE PROPER
CORE ELEMENT FOR LC/PCC
LC practice/PCC practice: For monographs, transcribe all parallel titles proper. For serials, record all parallel titles proper in MARC field 246. For rare serials, transcribe all parallel titles proper appearing on the same source as the title proper in MARC field 245 and record also in MARC field 246 for access.
[2015-01]
LC-PCC PS for 2.3.4
OTHER TITLE INFORMATION
CORE ELEMENT FOR LC/PCC
LC practice/PCC practice: Other title information is a core element for monographs. For serials, transcribe other title information if it provides clarification or support to the title proper that otherwise might appear misleading without the other title information.
LC practice/PCC practice: For rare serials, transcribe other title information according to DCRM(S) 1D.
[2015-01]
LC-PCC PS for 2.3.4.3
RECORDING OTHER TITLE INFORMATION
