245 (Title and statement of responsibility)
- Verify that the 245 (|a :|b /|c) reflects the exact wording
of the title on the title page. The information may appear in a different
order from that of the title page, but it should be accurately transcribed.
Make all necessary changes.
- Punctuation and capitalization may vary, but abbreviation or substitution
of words is incorrect and should be corrected.
- If there is a word or phrase on the title page introducing the statement
of responsibility (by, edited by, sponsored by, etc.) it should appear
in the |c on the copy. If there is no such phrase, there should be none
on the copy.
- Titles of address associated with the name of the author, editor,
etc. are generally omitted, except for British titles of nobility and
phrases like Jr., John Doe, III, etc.
