1.01.1 Sources of information

1.01.1.1 The source of information for the title elements is the title page(s) (see Data provenance, 0.1.5). The preferred source of information for multipart monographs is the title page of the first volume. The preferred source of information for single-sheet manifestations is the whole sheet, including both sides.

1.01.2 Element order

1.01.2.1 In ISBD, title and statement of responsibility are treated as a single area of description. These instructions provide general element order for the title and statement of responsibility elements, punctuated and capitalized according to ISBD:

Title proper : other title information / statement of responsibility relating to title proper

1.01.2.2 Parallel title proper and parallel other title information are transcribed in the order in which they appear on the preferred source of information.

Title proper = Parallel title proper : other title information = parallel other title information

Title proper : other title information = Parallel title proper : parallel other title information

1.01.2.3 If there are titles in more than one language or script, but only a single statement of responsibility, transcribe the statement of responsibility after all the title information.

Title proper = Parallel title proper : other title information = parallel other title information / statement of responsibility relating to title proper

Title proper : other title information = Parallel title proper : parallel other title information / statement of responsibility relating to title proper

1.01.2.4 If there are both titles and statements of responsibility in more than one language or script, transcribe each statement of responsibility after the title proper, parallel title proper, or other title information to which it relates.

Title proper : other title information / statement of responsibility relating to title proper = Parallel title proper : parallel other title information / parallel statement of responsibility relating to title proper

1.01.2.5 If a resource without a collective title contains two or more expressions (other than supplementary matter), transcribe titles in the order in which they appear on the preferred source of information. If any of these titles lacks a matching statement of responsibility, transcribe the information in the order indicated by the sequence on, or by the layout of, the title page.

Title 1. Title 2. Title 3

Title 1 : other title information ; Title 2 : other title information / statement of responsibility

1.01.3 Form and order of information

1.01.3.1 Transcribe Title of manifestation and Statement of responsibility information in the form and order in which they are presented on the preferred source of information, unless specifically instructed otherwise (see Transcription, 0.4.94.05). The Title proper is the first element of the description.

1.01.3.2 For transposed elements, always make a Note on title to indicate the original position on the title page (see 1.29.31.2).

Example:
Title proper: Sonate à quatre mains pour le forte-piano, oeuvre 48
Note on title: Work number appears after statement of responsibility on title page
