Policy and formulation

Basic formulation of personal names

  • In general, avoid creating unqualified personal name access points, even in the absence of a conflict. Use judgment, however, as some names may be unusual enough in themselves, so that the addition of active dates or a title or another designation would be superfluous.
    • Example: Edward J. Geisweidt was established without any additional qualifications: he is the only Geisweidt in the name authority file, and with a middle initial, a conflict or ambiguity in identifying this person is highly unlikely.
  • Add birth and/or death dates to the authorized access point whenever available. In the absence of a conflict, do not change an existing authority record solely to add dates. (However, closing out an open birth date is acceptable.)
  • Make the following additions to the preferred name if applicable:
    • title of royalty (see 9.19.1.2.1)
    • title of nobility (see 9.19.1.2.2)
    • title of religious rank (see 9.19.1.2.3)
    • the term Saint (see 9.19.1.2.4)
    • the term Spirit (see 9.19.1.2.5)
    • an other designation associated with the person (see 9.19.1.2.6)
  • Make the following additions to the preferred name in this order of preference, in case of conflict (RDA 9.19.1.3-7)
    • Fuller form of name (RDA 9.19.1.4)
    • Period of activity of the person and/or profession or occupation (RDA 9.19.1.5). Folger practice: in general, prefer century dates over specific years of activity, and over profession or occupation
    • Other term of rank, honour, or office (RDA 9.19.1.6)
    • Other designation (RDA 9.19.1.7)
