Title of Series in More Than One Language or Script
Choose the title proper of the series in the language or script of the content of the resource. [RDA 188.8.131.52]
Example: Title of series also appears as: Collection Mercure. Resource is in English.

Title of Series in More Than One Form
Choose the title proper of the series on the basis of the sequence, layout, or typography of the titles on the source of information; if not, choose the most comprehensive title of series. RDA 184.108.40.206. "Sequence" applies to the earlier slide on preferred sources for the series statement.
Example. Title of series also appears as: À pleine vie:
|490||0||‡a Collection "à pleine vie"|
Note: the LCRI that instructed the cataloger to use upper case for a series name in apposition to the generic series term was not carried over into the LC PCC PS. It would be possible to follow the capitalization used on the resource, but to be consistent, the capitalization option should be used for all transcription areas.
Other Title Information of Series
Record other title information of a series only if it is considered necessary for the identification of the series
Example. Other title information of series: a collection of facsimile reprints.
