Yes, I was only talking about collective titles as a subtype of the former uniform titles.

It seems RDA calls this a "conventional collective title". The glossary gives as the definition: "A title used as the preferred title for a compilation containing two or more works by one person, family, or corporate body, or two or more parts of a work (e.g., Works, Poems, Selections)".

With respect to collective titles ...
I think we need to keep clear the distinction among:

1) A collective title on the manifestation transcribed in 245.

2) A collective title supplied by the cataloguer in 245 when the
collection lacks such a title, as opposed to transcribing part titles.


3) A collective uniform title supplied in 240.

I support the first two, and oppose the third, as a useless holdover
from cards.

Heidrun, I assume from the context you are speaking of collective
"uniform" titles.  RDA's abandoning traditional terminology adds to
the confusion.
