Uniform title used as a main entry in a bibliographic record.

Main entry under a uniform title is used when a work is entered directly under title and the work has appeared under varying titles, necessitating that a particular title be chosen to represent the work. Cataloging rules also prescribe the use of this field when the work is entered directly under title and additions or deletions to the title proper must be accommodated. In this latter case, the title may not actually vary from iteration to iteration. The title that appears on the work being cataloged is contained in field 245. There will be no 100, 110, or 111 field in records with field 130.


Descriptions of the first indicator position and all subfield codes, as well as input conventions for the 130 field, are given in the X30 Uniform Titles-General Information section. Because the second indicator is different for various X30 fields, it is not described in the general information section, but is described below.
