Attributes of Names and Resources

Attributes of names and titles are typically information that has been recorded in name headings (e.g., date of birth) or in uniform title headings (e.g., key for music) -- or they may have been included in a note in an Authority record for the name or title. With RDA they may be recorded separately from the heading or as part of the heading (or both). New fields for these attributes have been established for names and for resources (works and expressions).

New MARC Authority fields for name attributes:

046 - Special Coded Dates (R)
368 - Other Attributes of Person or Corporate Body (R)
371 - Address (R)
372 - Field of Activity (R)
373 - Associated Group (R)
374 - Occupation (R)
375 - Gender (R)
376 - Family Information (R)
378 - Fuller Form of Personal Name (NR)

New MARC Authority and Bibliographic fields for work and expression attributes:

046 - Special Coded Dates (new subfields only)
370 - Associated Place (R)
377 - Associated Language (R)
380 - Form of Work (R)
381 - Other Distinguishing Characteristics of Work or Expression (R)
382 - Medium of Performance (R)
383 - Numeric Designation of Musical Work (R)
384 - Key (NR)
