Persian NACO Manual
Citing the book in hand
In the 670 for the piece in hand cite only the title(s) immediately preceeding the name.
Titles should be capitalized according to the following lists:
always in caps.
only in caps. immediately bef. name
Citing main entry (when necessary)
If the work is entered under the name being established, use His, Her, or Author's in the 670. If the work is entered under a different name, cite the entry element of that name in full, followed by abbreviated forms for the other elements in that name.
- Ibn is abbreviated with a lower-case "b."
- A single letter in Persian which is romanized using two characters should be abbreviated using both characters (Sh., Kh.).
- Names with definite articles are abbreviated using the article and the appropriate character(s) (al-Hasan becomes al-H.; al-Shams becomes al-Sh.).
All letters retain their diacritics. There are no spaces between abbreviated letters except those with more than one character in the abbreviated form--these get a space before and after.
