Chief source of information

The disc surface or label on disc surface is the chief source of information.

Treat accompanying textual material or the container as the chief source of information if it furnishes a collective title that the disc surface or its label do not. In this case, make a note indicating the chief source of information.

If information is not available from the chief source, take it from the following sources (in this order of preference): accompanying textual material, container, other sources.

click here for an authorized
list of initial articles that count as non-filing characters)


|a Title |h [sound recording] : |b subtitle or other title information / |c those persons or bodies credited with a major role in creating the intellectual content of the sound recording.

Example:

Brutal youth |h [sound recorindg] / |c Elvis Costello.

"Those persons or bodies credited with a major role in creating the intellectual content of the sound recording" include writers of spoken words, composers of performed music, and producers having artistic and/or intellectual responsibility. If the participation of the person(s) or body (bodies) goes beyond that of performance, execution, or interpretation of a work (as is commonly the case with “popular,” rock, and jazz music), give such a statement as a statement of responsibility. If, however, the participation is confined to performance, execution, or interpretation (as is commonly the case with “serious” or classical music and recorded speech), give the statement in the 511 note area. (See AACR2 6.1F1.)

246 Varying Form of Title

1st Indicator:

250 Edition

Transcribe a statement relating to an edition of a sound recording that contains differences from other editions, or to a named reissue of a recording.

260 Publication, Distribution, Etc.

|a Place of publication : |b name of publisher/distributor, |c date of publication/distribution

Example:

|a New York : |b Columbia, |c p2004

Date of publication/distribution

Since 1971 the symbol “p” has been used to indicate the copyright date of recorded sound. When a single “p” date is present it should be transcribed as the date of copyright of the recorded sound:

260 … , |c p1995

If several “p” dates appear on an item, the latest may be used to infer date of publication. An inferred date is bracketed:

260 … , |c p[1992]

The symbol “c” is used to indicate the copyright date for the textual matter on the container of sound recordings. If the “p” and “c” dates are the same year, you may use both copyright symbols:

260 … , |c pc2002

You may see different “p” and “c” dates for digitally remastered analog recordings (such as LPs) that have been released on compact disc. For these, the “c” date may be used to infer the date of publication, but the “p” date should also be transcribed following the instructions at 1.4F5:

Give the latest date of copyright following the publication, distribution, etc., date if the copyright date is different. Examples:

260 … , |c c1992, p1973

260 … , |c [1981], p1975

Material on copyright for recorded sound from Richard Smiraglia, Describing Music Materials, pp.48-49, and Nancy Olson, Cataloging of Audiovisual Materials, p. 100.

300 Physical Description

|a The number of physical units of the sound recording (playing time of the sound recording (if readily available)) : |b Type of recording or encoding, Number of sound channels (if readily available), Recording and reproduction characteristics (if readily available) ; |c Dimensions

Common examples:

|a 1 sound disc (55 min.) : |b digital ; |c 4 3/4 in.

|a 2 sound discs (ca. 100 min.) : |b digital, stereo, Dolby processed ; |c 4 3/4 in.

440 Series Statement/Added Entry Title (Traced)

1st indicator: Undefined
