Well, this is the way it is supposed to be. It is because not all names
used as authors are also used as subjects, and you really don't want/need
all those blind references anyway. You can easily copy an authority record
from the author file to the subject file (and vice versa). If you down
load directly from OCLC, you can send an author authority record directly
to the subject file using a 949 field (at least that's the field we use)
949_ _ *atab=asub. You see, normally your default authority load table is
the author file for any authority record with 100, 110, or 111, so you need
to give a command to add to the subject authority file instead.
I hope this is clear--after lunch gets a little foggy sometimes.

We're a new site on Millennium (since July). I have just discovered that
there appear to be separate authority records for names used as authors
and names used as subjects. So if I add 4XXs to one, I must also add them
to the other. Double the fun!
Is this the way things are supposed to be in Millennium, or might it be
due to some peculiarity in our setup -- field group tags or something?
I'd be especially interested in hearing from libraries who do their own
authority control and were formerly users of Geac Advance.
