Conferences


Named conferences

Named conferences

Under RDA a conference name need not contain a word that denotes a conference, to be considered named

LCRI 21.1.B1 has no equivalent in RDA or in the LC-PCC PS

  • LCRI 21.1.B1:

    • “… when deciding whether a phrase is a name is that the phrase must include a word that connotes a meeting:  "symposium," "conference," "workshop," "colloquium," etc.”

Conferences


Named conferences1

Named conferences

A named conference need only fulfill these RDA definitions

  • RDA 8.1.2

    Person, Family, and Corporate Body:

    “The term corporate body refers to an organization or group of persons and/or organizations that is identified by a particular name and that acts, or may act, as a unit.”

  • RDA 8.1.3

    Name:

    “The term name refers to a word, character, or group of words and/or characters by which a person, family, or corporate body is known.”

Conferences


Named conferences2

Named conferences

  • Conference names eligible for use as an authorized access point (111 or 711)

    • Freedom & Faith

    • Digital Library Futures: User Perspectives and Institutional Strategies

  • Considered unnamed under AACR2, but named under RDA

  • May not convey the idea of a corporate body (conference)

Conferences


Named conferences3

Named conferences

Additions to names

  • RDA 11.7.1.4

    Names Not Conveying the Idea of a Corporate Body:

    “If the preferred name for the body does not convey the idea of a corporate body, record a suitable designation in the language preferred by the agency creating the data.”

  • Examples:

    • Freedom & Faith (Conference) (1984 : Saint Charles, Ill.)

    • Digital Library Futures: User Perspectives and Institutional Strategies (Conference) (2009 : Milan, Italy)

Conferences

See also LC-PCC PS for 11.7.1.4

  • Initialisms and Acronyms

    • “If the name chosen for the authorized access point for a corporate body is an initialism or acronym written in all capital letters (with or without periods between them), add a qualifier to the name.”

  • Example:

    CICA (Conference) (2011 : Hangzhou, China)

      • Conference on Bats (3rd : 1999 : Whitby, England)

      • BTR (Conference) (2nd : 2002 : University of New Mexico)

    • NARs now created for single instances of ongoing conferences

    Conferences


    Individual conference name authority records1

    Individual conference name authority records

    • Used by institutions who catalogue conference proceedings as serials

    • Should contain a 667 note per LC-PCC policy

      • 667 ##$a See also related access points for individual instances of this conference which include specific information about the number, date, or place of the individual conference.

    Conferences


    Collective conference name authority records

    Collective conference name authority records

    • Variant forms of the name of the whole series of an ongoing (sequential) conference may be added to the collective NAR:

      • 511 2# $w b $a Bat Conference

  • Earlier and later relationships are only carried in the collective conference name authority records

    • Note that PCC catalogers may use Appendix K relationship designators to relate names instead of earlier/later ($w a and $w b)

      • 111 2# $a Conference on Bats

      • 511 2# $w r $i Successor: $a Bat Conference

  • Conferences


    Guidelines on sequential conferences recap

    Guidelines on sequential conferences - Recap

    • If an name authority record already exists for the collective conference name

      • i.e., without number, date or place

    • And you need the individual conference - create an RDA name authority record for the individual conference

    • If no name authority record exists for the collective conference name

      • i.e. without number, date or place

  • Create an RDA name authority record for the individual conferenceunless it is being cataloged as a serial

  • Conferences


    Conflicts

    Conflicts

    • A variant name access point may match another variant name access point

    • A variant name access point may not match an authorized name access point

    • An authorized name access point may not match another authorized name access point

    Conferences


    Conflicts1

    Conflicts

    • An individual conference name access point is unlikely, itself, to conflict with another

      • BTR (Conference) (2nd : 2002 : University of New Mexico)

  • An collective conference name access point is more likely to conflict with another

    • Conference on Fishing

  • Conferences


    Conflicts2

    Conflicts

    • A collective conference name access point can be made unique with an RDA addition:
