1.2.32 Title access
22.214.171.124 Title access plays an important role in enabling users to identify and locate special collections materials. Variant title access enables titles other than the title proper to be indexed. While some title access will be handled by controlled access points, these instructions cover specific situations commonly encountered by rare materials catalogers in which the provision of variant title access is likely to be useful.
126.96.36.199 Instructions for title access appear in various elements, such as Parallel title proper (see 1.215.33), Variant titles of manifestation (see 1.25.35), and Title of item (see 1.27.31). Use judgment in determining which forms of title access will be most useful. Take the indexing capabilities of the institution’s local system into consideration when determining whether the additional access is needed.
