Building on the introduction provided in the webinar Forming Names According to RDA: Part 1, which focused on the benefits of authority structures and the basic rules for personal names and corporate bodies, this webinar explores more complex names designations we encounter for persons and corporate bodies.
The 2nd edition of DACS indicates the use of companion standards such as RDA for the formation of appropriate name headings. Challenges from chapter 9 include situations for personal names such as changes of names, religious titles and titles of nobility, various surnames, personal names guidelines for various countries. Challenges from chapter 11 include complex hierarchies and name changes for corporate bodies.
Special attention will be paid to the different treatments of jurisdictional and non-jurisdictional corporate bodies. Discussion will also include designations associated with corporate bodies of various types. The specific cases outlined will conclude with a conversation about patterns that can provide strategies for handling complex cases encountered through arrangement and description practices. A Q&A to address areas of uncertainty will conclude the presentation.
