MARC Definition
380 Form of work
In bibliographic and authority records: a class or genre to which a work belongs.
     ° May be used to differentiate a work from another work with the same title.

Instructions for PCC catalogers in Descriptive Cataloging Manual (DCM) Z1, section on field 380:
     ° Prefer a controlled vocabulary, such as LCSH, LCGFT, or MeSH, or use a source term from the MARC subject heading and term source codes or Genre/form source code in subfield ‡2 if appropriate.
     ° Capitalize the first term in subfield ‡a.
     ° When terms do not come from a controlled vocabulary, use the singular form.

» Unofficial LC policy is to not use non-genre terms (i.e., Trios, Quartets, Quintets, etc.) in the 380 field.

     ° Terms from different source vocabularies are recorded in separate occurrences of the field.
     ° When terms do not come from a controlled vocabulary, use a singular form
‡2 Source of term: MARC code that identifies the source of the term in subfield ‡a when it is from a controlled list.

From MLA-L, 5/7/2013: A question posed to Paul Frank of LC in a RDA live webinar in March 2013:
Q. How specific or granular can/should the 380 field be? Z1 says to prefer controlled vocabulary, e.g. from LCSH. Should we use only general terms from LCSH and avoid terms including medium (for example, Songs rather than Songs (High voice) with piano)? What term would be appropriate in the 380 for an opera aria?

A. I would leave medium of performance for the 382 field and use only the form itself for the 380 field:
380 __ Songs
380 __ Operas--Excerpts
381 Other distinguishing characteristics of work or expression (See also Recording other distinguishing characteristic of the expression of musicals work (RDA 6.18))
In bibliographic and authority records: Any characteristic that is not accommodated in a special field that serves to characterize a work or expression.
     ° Examples for music are: arranged statement of music or version.
     ° May be used to differentiate a work from another work with the same title.

382 Medium of performance See also (Recording medium of performance for musical works (RDA 6.15))
In authority records:
the instrumental, vocal, and/or other medium of performance for which a musical work was originally conceived or for which a musical expression is written or performed.
     ° May be used to differentiate a musical work or expression from another with the same title.
     Library of Congress best practice for recording medium of performance in field 382 in authority records:
     When recording the medium of performance for standard combinations, please create two 382 fields:
  • The first: apply the instruction at 6.15.1.5 (Standard combinations of instruments), e.g., the medium recorded for a string quartet would be "strings."
  • The second 382 should apply the instruction at 6.15.1.4 (Instrumental music intended for one performer to a part) ignoring the 3rd exception relating to standard combinations, e.g., the medium recorded for a string quartet would be "violins (2), viola, cello."
Currently, 382 fields are not added to authority records for authorized access points representing arrangements.

In bibliographic records:
For manifestations: the instrumental, vocal, and/or other medium of performance embodied in the manifestation.
For works and expressions: the instrumental, vocal, and/or other medium of performance for which a musical work was originally conceived or for which a musical expression is written or performed.
     ° May be used to differentiate a musical work or expression from another with the same title.

General guidelines for the 382 currently being followed, which may or may not be adopted/approved by LC:

° Record the complete medium of performance for a single work in a single 382 field.

° Do not include a 382 field for expressions (e.g., arrangements, etc.)

° Record the names of instruments or voices following these guidelines:

     ° Record the name of the instrument or voice in the singular (even if there is more than one)
          » follow the name with the number of that instrument or voice in ‡n
          » include the number even if it is implicit in the preferred title
          » do not include the number if the number of performers is uncertain

     ° Do not omit the terms alto, tenor, bass, etc.
          » although these terms are omitted from the medium of performance in access points as per 6.15.1.6.2

     ° Record the name of solo a instrument or voice in ‡b

     ° Record the names of doubling instruments in ‡d following the instrument to which it applies

     ° Record the names of alternate instruments in ‡p, following the instrument to which it applies

     ° If the work is for a standard combination of instruments or includes as an accompanying ensemble a standard combination of instruments:
          » record the name of each instrument
           and/or
          » record the name of the standard combination (string trio, piano quartet, etc.) examples

     ° Record the total number of performers needed for performance of the work in ‡s at the end of the field

Subfields: Multiple mediums from the same source vocabulary may also be recorded in separate occurrences of the field if each medium is controlled by an Authority record control number or standard number in subfield ‡0
‡a Medium of performance: a term that indicates the instrumental, vocal, and/or other medium of performance.
     ° Multiple mediums from the same source vocabulary may be recorded in the same field in separate occurrences of subfield ‡a.
     ° Terms from different source vocabularies are recorded in separate occurrences of the field.
‡b Soloist: term for a soloist (a featured instrument or voice accompanied by an ensemble)
‡d Doubling instrument: term for the instrument(s)/voice(s) a performer in a musical work/expression plays in addition to the primary instrument/voice
     ° May be recorded in separate occurrences of subfield ‡d
     ° May also be recorded in separate occurrences of the field if each medium is controlled by an authority record control number or standard number in subfield ‡0.
‡n Number of performers of the same medium named in the preceding subfield.
     ° May be omitted if the number equals 1
     ° give the name of the instrument or voice in the singular
     ° do not enclose the number in parentheses:
            violin ‡n 2 ‡a viola ‡n 1 ‡a cello ‡n 1
‡p Alternative medium of performance: term for an alternative instrument, vocal, and/or other medium of performance, given as an alternative to its primary medium of performance in preceding subfield ‡a, ‡b, or ‡d.
‡s Total number of performers needed to perform in the musical work.
‡v Note for information that is not kept otherwise in the subfields of the field.
     ° May contain a description of the relationship between an alternative medium of performance and its primary medium of performance, or other textual information

From Hermine Vermeij on PCCLIST, 1/21/2014: Situations in which ‡v would be useful, when the medium isn't clear from the title, the preferred title, or the 382 field, if present:
     ° giving voice type details for vocal works (SATB, SSA, etc.)
     ° explaining complicated doubling or instrumentation that can't easily be expressed using controlled vocabulary

383 Numeric designation of musical work (See also Recording numeric designation for musical works (RDA 6.16))
In bibliographic and authority records: a serial number, opus number, or thematic index number assigned to a musical work by the composer, publisher, or a musicologist.

Instructions for PCC catalogers in Descriptive Cataloging Manual (DCM) Z1, section on field 383:

Numeric designations from current and older editions of the same source and from an alternate source:
Separate 383 fields for alternate numbers from different sources (Ryom and Fanna) and numbering from an older edition of one of those sources (Ryom):
The number in the current (2007) edition of Ryom is RV Anh. 103. In the current edition, there is a reference from an older form of numbering (RV 102), taken from the 1986 edition. Even though it is referenced in the current edition, it is considered to have be taken from the older edition. Because there is no mlati code for the 1986 edition, there is no ‡2 code in the 383 field for the older from of number:
383 __ ‡c RV Anh. 103 ‡d Ryom ‡2 mlati    The mlati code for the 2007 edition of Ryom
383 __ ‡c RV 102 ‡d Ryom, 1986              The 1986 edition of Ryom doesn't have a mlati code
383 __ ‡c F. XII, 52 ‡d Fanna ‡2 mlati        Numeric designation from another source (mlati code Fanna), to be used in variant access points for the work

An unusual example:
Symphony no. 5, op. 76; first published as Symphony no. 3; once known as op. 24
383 __ no. 3
383 __ no. 5
383 __ ‡b op. 76
383 __ ‡b op. 24
