Copy or new edition? (LC-PCC PS for 2.1) and Revised editions
Note: this page was created with music cataloging in mind.
|These guidelines LC practice/PCC practice followed to determine whether a resource is a copy of an earlier edition or it is a separate edition requiring a separate bibliographic record.|
|Consider that the book is a copy if the only variation is one or more of the following:
° a difference in the printing or copyright date when there is also a publication date;
° a minor variation in an entity's name when a publisher uses multiple forms concurrently;
» A genuine name change, even if minor, should not be considered a variation;
° the addition, deletion, or change of an ISBN;
° a difference in binding;
° a difference in the edition statement or the series whenever the item is a CIP book issued by the publisher in both a hardbound and a softbound version.
|Consider that a new edition is involved whenever:
° there is an explicit indication of changes (including corrections) of content;
° anything in the MARC 245 field, 250 field, 300/‡a, or 4XX field differs from one bibliographic record to another.
