Working in Germany, I can't see the full OCLC record either, but I know exactly what you mean as this is a question which has bothered me for some time, as well.

In fact, I've brought the same point up twice on this list before (oh dear, it seems I'm repeating myself...). Read up these older mails in the archive:

The first thread then went somewhere else, but in the second thread, there was a very interesting answer by Bob Maxwell:
to which I answered with this:

I would be very interested to hear what the common practice is in the Anglo-American world: Include an added entry for the contributing author(s) only, or include a name/title entry or do neither? The last option is certainly possible according to the LC-PCC PS for 25.1, cf. this thread:

I've just joined this list and I did it so that I can ask this question. Please take a look at OCLC record #840606230, if you would. This book is conference proceedings, and has two statements of responsibility, one for a compiler (i.e. editor of compilation) and one for 20 authors, which has been shortened in the 245 $c to one name "and 19 others."

I made what I hope are some useful additions and changes to this record, which was already coded as RDA, but one particular thing has got me wondering.

At first I instinctively added a 700 added access point for the lone author left standing in the truncated SOR, Danilo Martuccelli, because previously there was none. Then it occurred to me that the "work" this book embodies is a compilation, and Martuccelli is in fact responsible only for one contribution to the compilation---i.e., one component work within the larger work. He is not a co-creator of the entirety of the larger work. (Mejia Sanabria, on the other hand, is of course a contributor to the entire compilation-work and his 700 is indubitably legitimate.)

Does this mean that Martuccelli, author of just one component work, should not be given a 700 added access point unless it is in fact a name/title access point that represents the component work for which he is responsible? (An AAP for the "predominant or first work" in a compilation is said not to be required for conference proceedings in the LC/PCC PS for 25.1, by the way.) Or maybe I'm getting too hung up worrying about "works" and the plain 700 author access point is just fine.

Thanks for any help!
