Presentation Icon
Building on the introduction provided in the Forming Names According to RDA: Part 1 webcast, which focuses on the benefits of authority structures and the basic rules for personal names and corporate bodies, this webcast explores more complex name 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 is paid to the different treatments of jurisdictional and nonjurisdictional corporate bodies. Discussion includes designations associated with corporate bodies of various types. The specific cases outlined conclude with a conversation about patterns that can provide strategies for handling complex cases encountered through arrangement and description practices.

Learning Objectives:
  • Recognize complex name formation problems
  • Increase capacity with the decoding of RDA rules
  • Relate to name conventions from other languages
  • Identify patterns established by the rules that can be used as a strategy for name formations going forward
