Mac:  That is helpful.  I did not ask about whether the statement of 
responsibility representing the contributors of component works should be 
recorded in the 245 $c, but I can see the argument against that. 

But I am still left wondering whether a plain 700 author added entry is 
allowable under RDA, whether or not there appears to be any particular value in 
it.  Do you think it is, or must any added entry related to a particular 
component work be a name-title entry rather than just a name entry?  RDA does 
not seem explicitly to provide for a simple author added entry related to one 
component of the larger work.  It only mentions name-title entries representing 
the components as related works.

We don't catalogue on OCLC.  You would have to cut. paste, and post
for me to see it.

Without seeing it, the main entry should be 111 for the conference,
not the editor or author of first paper.  Only the editor statement
should be in 245/$c, with a 700.

The authors of the papers are not joint authors.  If you are going to
include them, they should be in 505 following the titles of the
papers, not in 245/$c.  I see no real value in an added entry for just
one of them.

We are in the habit of doing full contents for conferences.  In the
early days many speakers were members of firms for which we
catalogued.  We are now paid by Lexus Nexus to key all paper titles
and authors for the online index they host of Canadian law symposia
proceedings, replacing a KWIC print index we used to publish.

(Could anyone use big grey 3 ring binders, left from that project?
Free for shipping.  They do say "Canadian Law Symposia Index" on

Considering authors of portions of a compilation as joint authors will
be, I suspect, a frequent RDA mistake, due to RDA's fuzzy language.
