Multiple Surnames

Use AACR2 22.5C to determine the appropriate entry element and refer from elements not chosen.  Remember that the first indicator is now "1" for compound surnames not "2".  If your heading has a hyphenated surname, don't forget to include the hyphen in the cross-reference.  If your surnames are separated by commas in printed sources, omit the commas from the heading and cross-references.  If you have evidence that the person prefers an entry element different than that suggested by the rules, follow the usage of the person.

Example 1 (hyphen included):

010:  : |a nr 00028775
040:  : |a CtY-BR |b eng |c CtY-BR
100:1 : |a Burmeister-Brown, Susan
400/1:1 : |a Brown, Susan Burmeister-
400/2:1 : |a Burmeister, Susan
670/1:  : |a Glimmer train, spring 1994: |b t.p. verso (Susan Burmeister-Brown)
670/2:  : |a Glimmer train, summer 1992: |b t.p. verso (Susan Burmeister)

Example 2 (commas between surnames omitted from 400s):

010:  : |a nr 96007916
