Illustrator Authorized Access Points
Descriptive Cataloging | Children’s and Young Adults’ Cataloging Program (CYAC)
Illustrations are a prominent part of children’s and young adults' material and access for them is provided on CYAC records. The use of the Relationship designator “illustrator” after the name of the illustrators identifies their contribution to the work. Names of significant contributors should always receive access via a 700 field. The following list helps with decisions about which roles or activities qualify a person for the “illustrator” designation.
|do NOT add relationship designator “illustrator” to access point||add relationship designator “illustrator” to access point|
|art direction||background illustrations by|
|compiler of illustrations||computer graphics by|
|corporate bodies/ design studio||cover illustration|
|pictures adapted by (illustrations adapted for print from film)||illustrator|
|decorations in the style of another artist *both artists|
|rendered for coloring by|
|reproduction illustrations by|
decorations by: Depends on type of illustration. If the decorations are actual pictures, no matter their size, decorator should get an access point for the illustrator. For other decorations, we decide if they are significant enough to warrant the access point on a case-by-case basis.
Note that the following functions are NOT given an additional access point: penciled by, inker, illustrator same as compiler or editor, illustrator same as primary access point, colorist, and colored by.
