Work cataloged ("Item in hand")

The item being cataloged often contains variant names and biographical or historical information about the person or body being established. Always examine the item for such information. Variant names should be recorded exactly as they appear. Paraphrase other information briefly and in English, if possible. Phrases such as "first important South African artist" or "Cistercian cloister" will help to identify the heading and distinguish identical names.
