Reprint, Translations, and Place of Publication |
In general, a card and a record should match with regard to reprint information. A card representing an original title should not be matched to a record that represents a reprint of that original title. However, OCLC can match a Yale card representing a reprint to a WorldCat record that represents the original by adding a 590 note to indicate that the Yale copy is a reprint.
OCLC will follow the guidelines in the Bibliographic Formats and Standards in converting translated works and use the 041, 240 and/or 500 fields as appropriate. If both card and record have a uniform title, both uniform titles must match in terms of language.
Place of publication (260 $a) must match
If both card and record have the same publisher but only one gives the place of publication, they are considered to match if all other applicable elements also match.
If both card and record have the same publisher but different places of publication and both places are within the same region or country, they are considered to match if all other applicable elements also match.
