Source of Information guidelines (RDA 2.2.2)

Preferred source of information:
Title page
If no title page: use information from cover, colophon pages, or anywhere within the resource.

Other source of information:

Accompanying materials, etc. or any other available source.

If information outside of the resource is used in certain elements, indicate this by placing the information in brackets. These elements include:

  • title proper
  • parallel title proper
  • other title information
  • all the subelements under statements of responsibility:
    • edition statement
    • production statement
    • publication statement
    • distribution statement
    • manufacture statement
    • series statement
These are all 2xx fields and the 490 field.

Putting data from sources outside your resource in brackets is enough. Notes on where you get the information are unnecessary.
