Sources of NLC verification: NLC headings in RLIN

If Canadian CIP is not available, look for the name on an AACR2 National Library of Canada record in RLIN.

You can conduct your heading search in the usual way. For NLC monographs, limit to records with an ONCG identifier by using the "als li oncg" add-on search.

NLC serial records can be identified by the code "nlc" in the 042 authentication field.

The following is an example of an NLC AACR2 serial record (selected fields only are shown):

If you find an NLC AACR2 heading for the name you are establishing, cite it in a separate 670 field as follows. Use it as your heading, whether or not the form of name matches the usage on the work you are cataloging.

    670 NLC in RLIN, date of search‡b(hdg.: _________________)

    For example:
    100 10 Anselmi, William
    670 Mediating culture, 1994:‡bt.p. (William Anselmi) cover p. 4 (assist. prof., Carleton Univ., Ottawa)
    670 NLC in RLIN, Jan. 19, 1995‡b(hdg.: Anselmi, William)

If you don't find NLC in RLIN, write "NLC in RLIN search done" on the printout of your authority record.
