5-- Related Title Block

Definition and Scope of Fields

This block contains titles other than the title proper related to the item being catalogued and generally appearing on the item. At present the following fields are defined:

Uniform Titles

500 Uniform Title
501 Collective Uniform Title
503 Uniform Conventional Heading

Variant titles

510 Parallel Title Proper
512 Cover Title
513 Added Title-page Title
514 Caption Title
515 Running Title
516 Spine Title
517 Other Variant Titles
518 Title in Standard Modern Spelling

Other related titles

520 Former Title (Serials)
530 Key-Title (Serials)
531 Abbreviated Title (Serials)
532 Expanded Title
540 Additional Title Supplied by Cataloguer
541 Translated Title Supplied by Cataloguer
545 Section Title

Indicators

Many of the related title fields have a first indicator that distinguishes significant titles. This indicator specifies whether the cataloguing agency has determined that the title should be used to create an independent title access point (or added entry). If an independent title access point should be generated from a field in the 5-- block, indicator position 1 takes the value 1. If an access point is not desirable, the value of indicator position 1 is 0. This indicator does not refer to the desirability of creating author/title access points or notes from the data in the field. Either of these two uses of the data is an option of the agency receiving the record whether the first indicator value is 0 or 1.

Subfields

For the use of subfields refer to each individual field. Note that fields 510 to 545 may use any of the subfields given at field 510.

Notes on Field Contents

Access points and notes:

The titles in the 5-- block are used to generate title and author/title access points in addition to the title in field 200 $a. Note that the title in the first occurrence of 200 $a can be coded as an access point through the indicator position 1 of field 200 and this form of title is thus not repeated in the 5-- block.

The contents of a related title field may be used for access points and to generate notes. For the latter use, a print constant may be generated based on the field tag.

Linking entries:

Titles in the 5-- block are not links to other records but are alternative titles associated with the item being catalogued. However, a 5-- field may be embedded in a 4-- field in addition to or instead of the title proper (200) of the bibliographic entity to which a link is being made. See EX 3 in the introduction to 4-- LINKING ENTRY BLOCK for an embedded key title.

Punctuation:

Punctuation is entered in the fields in the 5-- block according to the practice of the cataloguing agency.

Non-sorting characters:

Any nonsorting characters at the beginning of the title may be dropped as part of the creation of the exchange tape. Alternatively the Bibliographic Control Set (ISO 6630) characters 08/08 and 08/09 may be used. As pointed out in paragraph 4.6 of the preparatory material, NSB and NSE indicate the use of these characters in the examples.

Parallel variant title:

Parallel variant titles are recorded by repeating the appropriate variant title field. Subfield $z may be used in any field 510-541 to indicate the language of the title in that field.

Other variant titles:

Field 517 may be used for titles which should be entered in fields 510-516 but which because of the lack of specificity in the source format cannot be allocated to the correct field.

Items where there is more than one title proper:

Where there is more than one title proper, i.e. the document consists of several works and has no common title, subsequent dependent titles (e.g. parallel titles proper) should be entered in the 423 fields holding the 200$a to which they relate. For an example see 423 ISSUED WITH (EX 2).

Related Fields

312 NOTES PERTAINING TO RELATED TITLES (OF THE SAME WORK)
A note concerning to a variant title may also appear directly in a note in the 312 (or 300) field.

423 ISSUED WITH
Used for titles contained in additional 200$a subfields, in 200$c subfields and for titles associated with these.

500 UNIFORM TITLE

Field Definition

This field contains the particular title selected by the bibliographic agency by which a work that has appeared under varying titles is to be identified for cataloguing purposes. The title may have added to it elements to make it unique. The uniform title may be the primary (main) entry or there may be a personal or corporate name primary entry.

Occurrence

Optional. Repeatable.

Indicators

Indicator 1: Title Significance Indicator

Specifies whether the uniform title should be treated as an independent title access point, i.e. whether an access point (or added entry) should be made from this title or not.

0 Uniform title is not significant
It is not intended that an independent title access point be made under this uniform title (EX 1).

1 Uniform title is significant
An added access point should be made under this title (EX 2), or this title is the primary (main) entry (EX 3).

An agency may determine that a uniform title is significant for the purpose of creating an independent title access point and this will be reflected in the first indicator; however, in all cases in which the uniform title is the primary (main) entry (Indicator 2 = 1) the uniform title must be considered significant for independent title access.

The first indicator does not refer to the desirability of creating author/uniform title access points using the data in this field. Such access is determined according to the conventions of the record user.

Indicator 2: Primary Entry Indicator

Specifies whether the uniform title is primary (main) entry, i.e. there is no author (7--) primary entry and the cataloguing agency has entered the record under a uniform title. Use value 0 for cataloguing codes which do not recognise the concept of primary entry.

0 Title is not used as a heading
The uniform title is not the primary entry, though an added access point may be made for it as specified in Indicator 1 (EX 1, 2).

1 Title is primary entry
The primary entry for the item is the uniform title (EX 3).

Subfields

$a Uniform Title
The title by which the work is known without any qualifications or mention of any part. This subfield should be present whenever field 500 is used. Not repeatable.

$b General Material Designation
Text of general material designation. Repeatable.

The number of a part when the item to which the uniform title is being applied is only a part of the work named in the uniform title (EX 2). Repeatable for a subdivided part (EX 17).

$i Name of Section or Part
The name of a part when the item to which the uniform title is being applied is only a part of the work named in the uniform title (EX 3,4,14,15). Repeatable for a subdivided part (EX 3, 18).

$j Form Subdivision
The description of this subfield can be found above the description of $x.

$k Date of Publication
The date of publication of the item when it is added to the uniform title (EX 3). Not repeatable. The date of publication should still be entered in field 210.

$l Form Subheading
Standard phrase added to a heading to further specify the uniform title (EX 7, 9). Not repeatable.

$m Language (when part of a heading)
The language of the item, when required as part of the uniform title (EX 2, 3, 5, 7). Not repeatable. If the work is in more than one language, both languages should be entered in a single subfield $m (EX 5).

$n Miscellaneous Information
Any information not provided for in any other subfield (EX 8). Repeatable (EX 6, 9).

$q Version (or Date of Version)
An identification of the version of the work represented by the item; this may be the name or the original date of the version (EX 3). Not repeatable.

$r Medium of Performance (for Music)
The instrumentation, etc., of the item (EX 12, 13, 16). Repeatable.

$s Numeric Designation (for Music)

$u Key (for Music)
The musical key used as part of the uniform title (EX 12). Not repeatable.

$v Volume Designation
Used to indicate a particular part of an item that is related to another item. This subfield is used only when the field is embedded in a 4-- linking field (EX 10). It further defines the part of the linked item that bears the relationship designated by the 4-- tag. Not repeatable.

$w Arranged Statement (for Music)
The statement that a musical work is an arrangement (EX 16). Not repeatable.

$j Form Subdivision
A term added to the subject heading to further specify the kind(s) or genre(s) of material. This subfield is used only when the 500 field is embedded in a 604 NAME AND TITLE USED AS SUBJECT field. For examples see field 604. Repeatable.

$x Topical Subdivision
A term added to a title when used as a subject heading to specify further the topic that the subject heading represents. This subfield is used only when the 500 field is embedded in a 604 NAME AND TITLE USED AS SUBJECT field. For examples see field 604. Repeatable.

$y Geographical Subdivision

$3 Authority Record Number
The control number for the authority record for the heading. This subfield is used only when the 500 field is embedded in a 604 NAME AND TITLE USED AS SUBJECT field. Not repeatable.

Notes on Field Contents

The uniform title should be entered according to the rules of the inputting agency. The use made of uniform titles varies considerably between one agency and the next even when the same cataloguing rules are used. Those uniform titles which are main entry headings, i.e. those used primarily for anonymous classics, are an essential part of the record and must be exchanged, since they may be the only access point. Other uniform titles which never appear as a main entry heading are less significant, but it is recommended nonetheless that they be included in the exchange record.

Each cataloguing code has its own preferences for the form of headings, depending usually on tradition and language of cataloguing. Although no international standards exist, the following documents published by the IFLA International Office for UBC is a step in that direction.

Anonymous classics : a list of uniform headings for European literatures. London : IFLA/UBC, 1978.
ISBN: 0-903043-15-7

List of uniform titles for liturgical works of the Latin rites of the Catholic Church. 2nd ed. rev. London : IFLA/UBC, 1981. ISBN: 0-903043-35-1

Some cataloguing codes prescribe uniform headings for treaties, laws, protocols, etc. These should also be placed in UNIMARC in field 500, and be regarded as uniform titles. Any places or dates of treaties should be entered in $n Miscellaneous Information (EX 6, 9).

Related Fields

501 COLLECTIVE UNIFORM TITLE

The collective uniform title is used solely to group together works by a prolific author, such as collected works.

503 UNIFORM CONVENTIONAL HEADINGS

Uniform conventional headings always occur as primary entries for works without authors with primary responsibility under cataloguing rules which specify forms of headings for conferences, exhibitions, festschriften, etc., when these are not regarded as corporate authors.

Examples

EX 1
200 1#$aNSBThe NSEGrimani breviary
500 00$aBrevarium
710 02$aCatholic Church
Certain kinds of uniform title serve only to order entries within one heading. An added entry is not made for these uniform titles. For example some codes require that all Breviaries are ordered within the heading for the church under a uniform title, such as Brevarium. In the 200 field, 'The' is marked as non-filing.

EX 2
200 1#$aIliad, Book XXIV$fHomer$gedited by C.W. Macleod
500 10$aIliad.$hBook 24.$mEnglish
700 #0$aHomer
The title of the item is Book XXIV of Homer's Iliad. The work is entered under Homer according to the cataloguing rules used. A uniform title is created to ensure that all copies of Book 24 are located together in the catalogue, both under the heading for Homer and under the added entries for title.

EX 3
500 11$aBible.$iNew Testament.$iLuke.$mEnglish.$qRevised Standard Version.$k1972
The item is one book of the Bible, Luke, in the Revised Standard Version. The Bible is a main entry heading. Because there are so many different editions and imprints of the Bible, it is usual to add the date of publication to the uniform title for each in order to help order the items in a meaningful way.

EX 4
500 10$aCanterbury tales.$iKnight's tale
700 #1$aChaucer,$bGeoffrey,$fd.1400
A translation into modern English of Chaucer's Knight's tale entered under the uniform title Canterbury tales. Knight's tale.

EX 5
500 10$aNSBLe NSEmalade imaginaire.$mEnglish & French
700 #0$aMolière,$fl622-1673
An edition of Molière's Le malade imaginaire in the form of a parallel text, an English translation beside the French original. In this example, 'Le ' is marked as non-filing.

EX 6
500 00$aTreaties, etc.$nPrussia,$nl713
710 01$aFrance
711 01$aPrussia$c(Kingdom)

700 #l$aDickens,$bCharles,$fl812-1870
Selected portions of Charles Dickens' Sketches by Boz translated into German and entitled Londoner Skizzen von Boz.

EX 8
500 11$aGenesis$n(Anglo-Saxon poem)
The uniform title for the AngloSaxon poem Genesis has to be qualified to distinguish it from Genesis as a book of the Bible.

EX 9
500 10$aTreaties,etc.$nPoland,$n1948 Mar. 2.$lProtocols, etc.,$nl95l Mar. 6
710 0l$aUnited Kingdom
The uniform title for a treaty which, according to the cataloguing rules used, requires a form subheading for 'Protocols, etc.'

EX 10
410 #0$150010$aRecent research in the music of the classical era,$vv.
1718$1011##$a0147-00 86
The field 500 is embedded in a 4-- Linking Entry field because the item being catalogued is in a series. The agency regards all series added entries as having the character of uniform titles.

EX 11
For other uses of field 500 in a 4-- Linking Entry see other examples in 4-- Linking Entry Block.

EX 12
500 10$aConcertos$roboes(2), string orchestra$sop.9, no.3$uF major

Notes on Field Contents

This field is used for headings which are constructed to bring together works of a particular type which are not regarded by the cataloguing rules as having an author. These works are entered under type and divided by subject. The field is not used in any item which is regarded as having a corporate author by the cataloguing code under which it is being catalogued. Thus it is not used for laws and treaties entered under the name of a territorial authority.

Related Fields

500 UNIFORM TITLE
Uniform titles are related to uniform conventional headings, but the entry element of a uniform title is always based on a title of a work, whereas the form heading proper is a term rather than a title.

This field contains a parallel title (i.e., title proper in a different language or script) for which it is desired to create either a note or an access point.

Occurrence

Optional. Repeatable.

Indicators

Indicator 1: Title Significance Indicator.

Specifies whether the parallel title should be treated as an independent title access point, i.e. whether an access point (or added entry) should be made for it.

0 Parallel title is not significant

1 Parallel title is significant
An access point should be made under this title.

Indicator 2: blank (not defined)

Subfields

$a Parallel Title
The chief title of the item in a language and/or script relating to the title proper in 200 $a and excluding any other title information in that language. Not repeatable.

$e Other Title Information
Subtitles and other title information that appear subordinate to the parallel title in $a and are required as part of the access point or note. Repeatable.

$h Number of Part

The section or part name for items which are identified by a main title and a subsection title and are in the same language as the parallel title in $a. Repeatable.

$j Volume or Dates associated with Title
The part of a multi-volume work or serial to which the parallel title pertains. Not repeatable.

$n Miscellaneous Information
Text intended primarily for display in a note, e.g. 'varies slightly', 'paperback edition'. It will be placed in relation to the other subfields in the position where the cataloguing agency intends that it will display. Not repeatable.

$z Language of Title
Identifies the language of the parallel title. Its presence will enable recipients of the record to omit added entries for parallel titles in languages which are not felt to be useful in their databases. See Appendix A for list of language codes. Not repeatable.

Notes on Field Contents

This field should be used for a parallel title for which a note is to be created or which is required as an added entry. If indicator l is set to l, the data should be entered in a form suitable as an access point. This may involve removing initial articles and changes to prefixes or suffixes depending on the language of the parallel title. If it is desired to enter the parallel title as part of the statement of responsibility, this should be done in field 200 $d, and in 200 $e, if there is parallel other title information. If it is desired to create a note, the print constant 'Parallel title' or its equivalent in another language may be generated.

Related Fields

200 $d TITLE AND STATEMENT OF RESPONSIBILITY, parallel title proper
When the parallel title is recorded in the descriptive area of the record along with chief title proper, other title information and statements of responsibility in the form and sequence as in the item, then it is entered in field 200. Data in field 510 cannot be combined with the title proper in field 200 $a to recreate the data in the required order of ISBD.

304 NOTES PERTAINING TO TITLE AND STATEMENT OF RESPONSIBILITY
A note on the parallel title, or a note incorporating the text of the parallel title where it is not already recorded in field 200, may be entered in field 304.

541 TRANSLATED TITLE SUPPLIED BY THE CATALOGUER
Parallel titles are defined as titles in other languages found in the item. If the title is not found in the item but is translated by the cataloguer or taken by the cataloguer from another source, it should be entered in field 541.

Examples

EX 1
200 l#$aResúmenes sobre población en América Latina$fPrograma de información sobre Población en America Latina$d= Latin American population abstracts$fLatin American Population Information Program$zeng
510 l#$aLatin American population abstracts$zeng
The serial Resúmenes sobre población en America Latina has parallel title Latin American population abstracts. Both are entered in field 200 to provide the description of the document; but to provide for an added entry of the title proper in English, the English title is repeated in field 510.

EX 2
200 l#$aInformation transfer
510 l#$aTransfert de l'information$zfre

520 FORMER TITLE (SERIALS)

Field Definition

This field contains an earlier title of a serial catalogued under a later title. It is used when the serial under its different titles is considered to be one bibliographic entity so that only one record is maintained in the data base with the title proper reflecting the current title. The earlier titles are, in this case, treated as alternative titles for one entity.

Occurrence

Optional. Repeatable.

Indicators

Indicator 1: Title Significance Indicator

Specifies whether the former title should be treated as an independent title access point, i.e. whether an access point (or added entry) should be made for it.

0 Former title is not significant
It is not intended that an access point be made under the former title.

1 Former title is significant
An access point should be made under this title.

Indicator 2: blank (not defined)

$i Name of Part
The name of a part of the serial when the serial is divided into subseries. Not repeatable.

$j Volumes or Dates of Former Title
The numbering of the span of volumes, etc., of the former title or in the absence of that, its spanning dates. Both may be entered (EX 1). Not repeatable.

$n Miscellaneous Information
This subfield is used for text intended primarily for display in a note. It will be placed in relation to the other subfields in the position where the cataloguing agency intends that it will display as a note. Not repeatable.

$x ISSN of Former Title
The ISSN assigned to the former title. Not repeatable.

Notes on Field Contents

This field is repeated for each former title for which an added entry is made. Subfields $a, $e, $h and $i correspond to the same subfields in field 200. However, $a (Former title proper) may be replaced by the key title of the former title if preferred. Subfield $j is intended for producing notes relating to the title. The ISSN of each former title should be included when available.

Related Fields

43- Preceding entry fields
These linking fields are used for the earlier titles of a serial when the cataloguing agency considers each span of the serial under a different title to be a separate bibliographic entity and catalogues each title in a separate record.

Examples

530 KEY TITLE (SERIALS)

Field Definition

This field contains the key title the unique title assigned to serials by the International Serials Data System.

Occurrence

Repeatable. While there should logically be only one key title per record, differences in practice between the agency preparing the record and the ISDS may result in one serial record with two (or more) key titles.

Indicators

Indicator 1: Title Proper Indicator

This indicator indicates whether or not the key title as it appears when printed out is the same as the title proper in 200 $a. Thus it is unlikely that any key title field using subfield $b will have indicator 0 (EX 2, 3, 4).

0 Key title is the same as the title proper
1 Key title differs from the title proper

Indicator 2: blank (not defined)

Subfields

$a Key Title
The key title without the addition of any qualification. It includes, for generic titles, the name of the issuing body following a space hyphen space (EX 3,4). Not repeatable.

$b Qualifier
Any qualification included in the key title in order to distinguish it from other serials with the same title (EX 2, 4). Following ISDS practice, the qualification is enclosed in parentheses. Not repeatable.

$j Volume or Dates Associated with Key Title
This subfield is used when the record contains more than one key title which has been assigned to different volumes or datespans of the life of the periodical. The data distinguishes the periods over which the relevant key title applies. Not repeatable.

$v Volume Designation
This subfield is used to indicate a particular part of an item (volume, issue and pages if appropriate) that is related to another item. This subfield is used only when the field is embedded in a 4-- linking field. It further defines the part of the linked item that bears the relationship designated by the 4-- tag. Not repeatable.

Notes on Field Contents

Data in subfields $a, $b, and $j is entered according to the provisions contained in the ISDS manual (1983). The key title is established by the ISSN centre responsible for the registration of the serial and is derived from the title information appearing in the publication at the time of registration. Since only an ISSN centre can establish a key title, any agency other than a centre preparing a record should enter a key title only when it is found on the document or when it has been checked with its ISSN centre. Any other title is by definition not a key title.

For more information on key titles refer to the appropriate ISSN centre.

Related Fields

011 ISSN
According to ISDS rules the key title is inseparably linked to its ISSN and both should be entered in the record when available.

200 TITLE AND STATEMENT OF RESPONSIBILITY
The title on the item is entered in field 200. If no key title is available, the title on the item must be entered in field 200.

Examples

The following are examples of key titles in field 530 followed by their representation in their display form. In examples 2, 3, and 4, the first indicator is set to 1 since the key title differs from the title proper.

Subfields

$a Abbreviated Title
The abbreviated key title without the addition of any qualifying information. It includes, for generic titles, the name of the issuing body following a space hyphen space (EX 3). Not repeatable.

$b Qualifier
Any qualifying information added to the key title to make it distinctive from an otherwise identical key title. This may or may not be abbreviated. Following ISDS practice, the qualification is enclosed in parentheses. Not repeatable.

$v Volume Designation
This subfield is used to indicate a particular part of an item (volume, issue and pages if appropriate) that is related to another item. This subfield is used only when the field is embedded in a 4-- linking field. It further defines the part of the linked item that bears the relationship designated by the 4-- tag. Not repeatable.

Notes on Field Contents

The abbreviated form of the key title is constructed according to rules prepared by the International ISSN Centre. It also maintains the Liste d'abréviations de mots des titres de publications en série = List of serial title word abbreviations. Paris: ISDS International Centre, 1985. ISBN: 2-904938-02-8. This list consists of abbreviated key titles and can only be extended by the International ISSN Centre, usually at the request of a local ISSN centre.

Only key titles abbreviated according to ISDS provisions are entered in this field.

1 Numeral. The expansion involves writing the numeral out in full (EX 6).
2 Abbreviation. The expansion involves writing abbreviated words in full (EX 1, 2).
3 Other, non-roman symbol, etc. Any other expansion such as replacement of a symbol by text (EX 4, 5), e.g., '&' replaced by 'and' or 'et'.

If a combination of conditions applies, use the higher value in preference since these indicate the more complicated conditions. Use value 3 if the particular condition is not known.

Subfields

$a Expanded Title
The complete text of the expanded title. Not repeatable.

$z Language of Title
This subfield identifies the language of the expanded title. See Appendix A for a list of language codes (EX 5). Not repeatable.

Notes on Field Contents

Any expanded title may be entered in this field. It may be an expression of the title proper or in the case of serials the key title. Under certain circumstances ISSN requires that a key title with abbreviations be expanded; this may be entered in field 532 (EX 2, 3, 4, 5, 6).
