Exceptions to LC/NLC Cooperative Agreement
In the following cases, we are not required to use the Canadian heading
for a personal name:
- The form of name on which the old catalog (LC pre-AACR2) heading is
based, matches the usage on the work you are cataloging, and the old
LC heading would be an acceptable AACR2 heading. In this case NLC verification
is not required.
- The Canadian heading would conflict with another AACR2 heading already
- In this case establish the name according to usual AACR2 and LCRI
practice. Record the NLC form on your authority record as prescribed
in the preceding sections. Explain the discrepancy in a 667 field
667 NLC form conflicts with another LC heading.
- The existing LC heading matches the NLC heading, except that the
NLC heading includes a date.
- Accept the old LC heading as the AACR2 form, provided it is otherwise
an acceptable AACR2 heading.
