Library of Congress Rule Interpretations for Chapter 7 (complete)

 

 

Chapter 7 Motion Pictures and Videorecordings

 

 

7.1. Title and Statement of Responsibility Area

 

7.1B. Title proper

 

7.1B1.

Note: LC uses Archival Moving Image Materials, rather than Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules, for all its moving image materials cataloging.

 

PCC practice: When credits for performer, author, director, producer, "presenter," etc.,

precede or follow the title in the chief source, in general do not consider them as part of

the title proper, even though the language used integrates the credits with the title. (In

the examples below, the italicized words are to be considered the title proper.)

 

Twentieth Century Fox presents Star wars

Steve McQueen in Bullitt

Ed Asner as Lou Grant

Jerry Wald's production of The story on page one

Ordinary people, starring Mary Tyler Moore and Donald Sutherland

Thief, with James Caan

 

This does not apply to the following cases:

1) the credit is within the title, rather than preceding it;

 

CBS special report

IBM--close up

IBM puppet shows

 

2) the credit is actually a fanciful statement aping a credit;

 

Little Roquefort in Good mousekeeping

 

3) the credit is represented by a possessive immediately preceding the remainder of the

title.

 

Neil Simon's Seems like old times

7.7B7, 8.7B7. Edition and history

When an item is known to have an original master in a different medium and the production or release date of the master is more than two years earlier than that of the item being cataloged, give an edition/history note.

 

Originally produced as motion picture in [year]

Originally issued as filmstrip in [year]

 

Make a similar note when an item is known to have been previously produced or issued (more than two years earlier) if in a different medium, but the original medium is unknown.

 

Previously produced as motion picture in [year]

Previously issued as slide set in [year]

 

If the date of production or release of an original master or an earlier medium is unknown

or if the difference between its production or release date and the production or release of

the item being cataloged is two years or less, indicate the availability of the other medium

or media in a note according to 7.7B16 and 8.7B16.

 

Produced also as slide set

Issued also as slide set and videorecording

 

Note: The use of production versus release dates is left to the cataloger's judgment. Make

the note that seems best to give information about either production or release of other

formats on a case-by-case basis.

 

7.7B9, 8.7B9. Publication, distribution, etc.

When a foreign firm, etc., is given in the source as emanator or originator, do not assume

that the item was either made or released in that country if not so stated. Instead, use the

following type note:

 

A foreign film (Yugoslavia)

A foreign filmstrip (Yugoslavia)

A foreign slide set (Yugoslavia)

 

For a U.S. emanator and a foreign producer or a foreign emanator and a U.S. producer, do not make the note.
