Authority Control at Yale  |  Authority Control Advisory Committee  |  MARS Authority Control Processing

MARS Implementation : Results of QA of CJK Recon Records

Conducted November 2001 by Polly Chang, Calvin Hsu, Xinkai Kong, and Dajin Sun.  Each person searched all of the headings on 50 bib records.

Please note: diacritics are not represented correctly in the examples provided!


1. Problems with MARS processing

1.1. Bib record has heading with incorrect geographic subdivision
1.2. Bib record has heading with obsolete topical subdivision

2. Problems that MARS processing canít fix

2.1.  Bib record has heading not represented by an authority record
2.2.  Bib record has variant heading not represented as xref on authority record
2.3.  Bib record has typo in heading
2.4.  Bib record has heading without date - needs date added
2.5.  Bib record had heading with date - needs date removed



1.1. Bib record has heading with uncorrected geographic subdivision (DHF4627)

BIB:
650/1: 0: |a Agriculture |x Economic aspects |z Formosa.

AUTH:
010:  : |a n  80022631  |z n  50060462  |z sh 85131969

151: 0: |a Taiwan
451: 0: |a Formosa



1.2. Bib record has heading with obsolete topical subdivision (DHF4983)

BIB:
650/1: 0: |a Chinese language |x Idioms, corrections, errors.

Should have split 650 in bib record into two subject headings.



2.1. Bib record has heading not represented by an authority record

2.1.a. (DHF4325)

BIB:
110:2 : |a Xue xi (Chu ji ban)
245:10: |a Zhongguo gong chan dang jian shi |c xue xi za zhi chu ji ban zi liao shi bian.

110 should be 130 as "Xue xi (Chu ji ban)" is a uniform title, but no authority record exists that could provide a match.

-------------------------------------------------------------

2.1.b. (DHF3085)

BIB:
100:1 : |a Liu, Yin, |d 1904-1942.

There is an authority record for "Liu, Yin" without dates but it is a different person. Good that MARS did not remove dates from our heading.



2.2. Bib record has variant heading not represented as xref on authority record

2.2.a. (DHF4475)

BIB:
700/1:1 :  |a Jiang, Dunfu,  |d 1808-1867.

AUTH:
010:  : |a nr 94021255
040:  : |a DLC-R |b eng |c DLC-R |d OCoLC
100:1 : |a Jiang, Dunfu, |d 19th cent.
400/1:1 : |w nne |a Chiang, Tun-fu, |d 19th cent

--------------------------------------------------------------

2.2.b. (DHF2402)

BIB:
245:10: |a Li Zongren hui yi lu / |c Li Zongren kou shu ; Tang Degang zhuan xie.
700/1:1 : |a Tang, Degang, |d 1920-

AUTH:
010:  : |a n  80104358
040:  : |a DLC |c DLC
100:10: |a Tong, Te-kong, |d 1920-
400/1:10: |a T ang, Te-kang, |d 1920-

--------------------------------------------------

2.2.c. (DHF4234)

BIB:
130:0 : |a Huang chao jing shi wen.
245:10: |a Huang chao jing shi wen san bian |b 80 juan |c Chen Zhongyi ji.

AUTH:
010:  : |a nr 93016156
040:  : |a DLC-R |b eng |c DLC-R |d OCoLC
130: 0: |a Huang chao jing shi wen bian
430/1: 0: |w nne |a Huang ch ao ching shih wen pien
430/2: 0: |a Qing jing shi wen bian
 



2.3. Bib record has typo in heading

2.3.a.  (DHF2375)

700/3:1 : |a Tao, Shigui.

AUTH:
010:  : |a nr 94023104
040:  : |a NjP |b eng |c NjP |d OCoLC
100:1 : |a Tao, Wangling, |d b. 1562
400/1:1 : |w nne |a T ao, Wang-ling, |d b. 1562
400/2:1 : |a Tao, Zhouwang, |d b. 1562
400/3:1 : |a Tao, Shikui, |d b. 1562
400/4:1 : |a Tao, Wenjian, |d b. 1562
400/5:1 : |a T ao, Chou-wang, |d b. 1562
400/6:1 : |a T ao, Shih-k uei, |d b. 1562
400/7:1 : |a T ao, Wen-chien, |d b. 1562

Original Wade-Giles heading probably had "Shi-kuei" which was changed during Pinyin conversion to "Shigui".
Original Wade-Giles heading should have had "Shi-k'uei" which would have been converted to "Shikui". However, even though "Shikui" is in a cross-reference, it is unlikely that MARS could have corrected the heading to the established form because the bib record heading has no dates.

------------------------------------------------------

2.3.b. (DHF3822)

BIB:
440/1: 0: |a Zhuangguo ren min wen yi cong shu

AUTH:
010:  : |a n  84738137

130: 0: |a Zhongguo ren min wen yi cong shu.

643/1:  : |a Peking |b Xin hua shun dian fa xing
644/1:  : |a f |5 DLC
645/1:  : |a t |5 DLC
646/1:  : |a s |5 DLC
670/1:  : |a Juan, C.C. Ch ih-yeh ho, 1950: |b t.p.

Bib record has Wade-Giles typo in 440.


2.3.c. (DHF4933)

BIB:
650/1: 0: |a Inscription, Chinese.

AUTH:
010:  : |a sh 85066583
040:  : |a DLC |c DLC |d DLC
150: 0: |a Inscriptions, Chinese
450/1: 0: |a Chinese inscriptions



2.4.  Bib record has heading without date - needs date added (DHF2359)

BIB:
100:1 :Xu, Ding

AUTH:
010:  : |a nr 98006141
040:  : |a NIC |c NIC
100:10: |a Xu, Ding, |d 1966-
400/1:10: |a Hsu, Ting, |d 1966-



2.5.  Bib record had heading with date - needs date removed (DHF3610)

BIB:
100:1 : |a Li, Guo.
245:10: |a Fu dong di yu : |b zha gen di yi bu / |c Li Guo zhu.
246/1:30: |a Zha gen
260:  : |a Xinjiapo : |b Qing nian shu ju, |c 1961.

AUTH:
010:  : |a nr 87000198
040:  : |a CtY |b eng |c CtY |d DLC-R |d OCoLC
100:1 : |a Li, Guo
400/1:1 : |w nne |a Li, Kuo

Note that 100 is correct - no way to know whether it was this way to begin with or whether it was corrected by MARS.
