I'm trying to explain the use of a 240 uniform title in a bibliographic record clearly to my staff. I have a tenuous grasp on uniform titles and welcome any direction to specific training in depth about the choices of MARC tags in different situations.
I understand that the title in question "Nuclear weapons : ‡b factors leading to cost increases with the uranium processing facility" (OCLC863158972 for those with access) is the first of a predicted quarterly report. Is it disingenuous to ask whether it was appropriate to create this 240 in the record for the first of the series when RDA LC-PCC PS for 220.127.116.11 says under General: "Do not predict a conflict". My understanding is that one waited until the 2nd report (the conflict) appeared in order to make the uniform title in this situation. Or alternatively; create a serial record. Can someone clarify? Many thanks. //SIGNED// Patricia Fogler Chief, Cataloging Section (AUL/LTSC) Muir S. Fairchild Research Information Center DSN 493-2135 Comm (334) 953-2135
