Subject Headings for Individual Works of Art, Architecture, and Analogous Artifacts and Structures. A Final Report.
Younger, Jennifer; And Others
Prepared to identify problem areas and to present cataloging principles in accordance with basic subject and name entry theory and practice, this final subcommittee report makes five recommendations to the Resources and Technical Services Division of the American Library Association for changes in current practices in subject cataloging of individual works of art, architecture, and related materials. These are (1) the assignment of a subject heading for the artist, when known, for all works of art and public monuments, further subdivided by "--individual works"; (2) the assignment of a subject heading for the architect, engineer, landscape architect, or other creator when known, further subdivided by "--Individual works"; (3) omission of the name of the individual art work, whether anonymous or by a known artist, from the subject heading; (4) the establishment of all subject headings for the names of buildings, gardens, monuments, bridges, parks, playgrounds, plazas, and streets according to the second edition of the Anglo-American Cataloging Rules; and (5) the use of multiple access points. Patterns and examples of subject headings are provided. (RAA)
