For items including several works but lacking a collective title, field 246 is used only for titles related to the title selected as the title proper, usually the first work named in the chief source of information. Titles related to other works are recorded in field 740 (Added Entry-Uncontrolled Related/Analytical Title) or one of the other 7XX (Added Entry) fields.



Type of title recorded in field 246. Used to generate a display constant that generally precedes titles when notes are generated from this field, i.e., when the first indicator is set to value 0 or 1.

No information is provided in the indicator as to the type of title. Information may be provided in subfield $i (Display text) when a special display is needed, or the value is used for titles not handled by the other values.

Added entry may be generated by first indicator value 1. No note is generated. Title given in field 246 is a portion of a title for which access or an added entry is desired, but which does not require that a note be generated from this field. Examples for which value 0 is used are the following. Portions of the title in field 245 such as part or section titles (subfield $p); alternative titles (subfield $a); and portions of the title proper/short title for which access is desirable (subfield$a). The portion of the title is transcribed as it appears.

Parallel title that is contained in subfield $b of field 245. No note is generated. Parallel title is a title in another language for which access or an added entry is desired. When one or more parallel titles have been recorded in field 245, each parallel title is also recorded in a separate field 246.

Special title that appears in addition to the regular title on individual issues of an item and by which the issue may be known. Distinctive title: may be generated with the note for display. Distinctive titles are most commonly found on such items as annual reports, yearbooks, or conference proceedings when an issue is dedicated to a particular topic or theme. Distinctive titles should not be confused with individual titles (e.g., analytics) within a series. The distinctive titles are recorded in field 246 if the individual volume is likely to be known by the special title. Subfield $f is always used with a distinctive title.

Another title that appears on the piece that is not more appropriately indicated by one of the other values. Other title: may be generated with the note for display. Used when subfield $i is not being used to give specific text. Other titles include masthead title, half-titles, binder's titles, colophon titles, parallel titles not recorded in field 245, cover titles found in an inverted format at the back of the publication, spelled out titles, etc. The display constant

4. At either the top or bottom of the screen, select Audio & Subtitles . On TVs, language options may appear at the bottom without the icon. You can choose from the languages shown or select Other to see all language options.

Sometimes we're talking about a work Divided for Publication; if it has a "Part 1/One/I" in the title because they want to divide a single story in parts to make it easier to follow or fit in the time schedule, keep that clear. There are also cases of when the title didn't have it originally, and then it was added as a Retronym; when adding examples, keep clear which titles were always called like this and which ones were renamed after the fact. 041b061a72
