Hi, everyone --
One of our music librarians inquired about relator codes in the catalog, and I wanted to send along her question to you: should we index the 700$4 field (added entry-personal name relator code), so that we can both search and display this information? There is some interest here in seeing if the codes could be used to separate out different roles (e.g., Leonard Bernstein as performer vs Leonard Bernstein as composer), creating limits, and of course, searching. The folks in the rare books library are also interested in this possibility because they might be able to separate out information like "former owner" for a donor collection from records where the donor is actually the author (e.g., in the case of Elizabeth Bishop, whose collection's items contains many "former owner" notations in the records).
>From an inquiry to the Innopac Music Users list, we've learned that some libraries have achieved this with relator terms, not codes, and also by using the 79x rather than the 700. Do any of you have experiences with this, and if so, could you tell me more about your experiences?
I'm happy to collect responses off-list (jdipasquale at vassar dot edu) and write back with an aggregated response if others on the list are also interested. Also, if there is another more appropriate III list for this inquiry, please let me know and I'll send my question there. (And apologies in advance if I haven't explained this very clearly; I'm gathering information as I go!)
Thank you for your help! I'm a new III user and have very much enjoyed learning from all of you via this list.
