Recording Publisher’s Name
Record the publisher's name applying the basic instructions on recording publication statements given under 2.8.1 -- “in the form in which they appear on the source of information.” LCPS 188.8.131.52 states, “Generally do not omit levels in corporate hierarchy.”
Record words or phrases indicating the function (other than solely publishing) performed by a person, family, or corporate body as they appear on the source of information.
Do not abbreviate words in the name.
More Than One Publisher
If more than one entity is named as a publisher of the resource, record the entities in the order indicated by the sequence, layout, or typography of the names on the source of information.
Publisher's Name in More Than One Language or Script
If the name of a publisher appears on the source of information in more than one language or script, record the form that is in the language or script of the title proper. If this criterion does not apply, record the name in the language or script that appears first.
No Publisher Identified
For a resource in a published form, if no publisher is named within the resource, and cannot be identified from other sources, record [publisher not identified]. Do not record [s.n.].
Transcribe as found in full; do not supply abbreviations
