Issues for catalogers particularly those in art architecture or historical collections

issues for catalogers, particularly those in art/architecture or historical collections

  • name and body may share name, may not

    • construction of “artificial” names for building, e.g., Banca Commerciale Italiana Building (New York, N.Y.) [670 = Phone call to Paul Cohen, archivist at Lehman Brothers in New York City. Building now owned by Banca Commerciale Italiana and known by that name]

    • “-- Buildings” as subdivision under corporate names

  • historical names: resource in hand may be about building under earlier name, particularly important in picture collections

    • buildings can change name, function, even location

  • venues for exhibitions (space vs organizing group)


Presentation for saco at large

  • ARLIS/NA Cataloging Advisory Committee proposed LCRI to CPSO

    • http://artcataloging.net/ala/mw04/bldg2002.html

Saf naf

SAF/NAF

  • “divided world”: related to capability for authorship

    • buildings, ancient sites, artist groups

  • ease of record creation (SACO Program has eased the process of creating SH proposals; as with name authority work, internet resources can often help in verifying names of structures)


Presentation for saco at large

FRBR

  • entities in groups

    • Group 1: work, expression, manifestation, item

    • Group 2: persons, corporate bodies (capability of authorship)

    • Group 3: concept, object, event, place (subjects)

  • corporate bodies vs. FRBR objects

    • classes of objects vs. individual objects in those classes


Aacr2 earlier rules

AACR2 & earlier rules

  • institutions (e.g., churches, monasteries, public libraries, museums, theaters, hospitals)

  • name changes

    • AACR2 uses sequence of headings

    • SCM:SH uses latest name

  • historical names: resource in hand may be about building under earlier name, particularly important in picture collections

  • venues for exhibitions (space vs organizing group)


Overview of scm sh h 1334

overview of SCM:SH H 1334

  • model

    • heading: [name of structure] ([geographic qualifier])

    • reference(s): [alternate name(s)] (geog. qualifier)

    • broader term: [type of structure] $z [country or first-order subdivision]

  • direct order entry

  • preference for vernacular for post-1500 entities; preference for English for pre-1500 if well-established name in English

  • latest name


Lcsh or aat

LCSH or AAT

  • AAT doesn’t include individual buildings and building complexes

  • may be useful for building types

  • mixing vocabularies can be problematic

  • proposing LCSH based on AAT
