Compilations, Selections, Translations in RDA & AACR2 & Cutter Numbers : Questions

How do you cutter a translation of a new collection of stories or poems by one author? How would you account for the collection title in the original language?

Under the new guidelines in RDA, many compilations of poems, stories, etc. by one author that used to be cuttered and treated as separate works according to the old LCRI 25.10 because the collection had a “distinctive” title are now given a conventional collective title and cuttered as collections or selections according to CSM F633. 

However, there isn’t an example in F633 which illustrates what to do with the original title proper of a translation of collected poems, stories, etc. if the original collection title was “distinctive”. In some cases, the collection in the original language wasn’t published long enough ago for it to have necessarily “become known” by that title (the original collection and translation may even be published in the same year). So, according to RDA 6.2.2.10, the translation of such a collection would be cuttered as a translation of selected works and have the conventional collective title in the 240. However, it seems like there should also be some way to trace the collection title proper in the original language. Would it be appropriate to trace it in an author-title added entry as in LCCN 2014007357?

Here’s an example:

The title “Lashing skies” by Madeleine Monette, is an English translation of the French collection of poems, “Ciel à outrances” (LCCN 2012493907)

Here’s another:

“Seasonal time change” is an English translation on LCCN 2013465420 “Umstellung der Zeit”

Should the preferred title for these translations be the conventional collective title, “Poems.‡k Selections.‡l English” and should you use the A2 cutter from Table P-PZ40, or, in cases like this in which the record for the collection in the original language has already been cataloged according to AACR2 rules, should you make an exception, use the original collection title as the preferred title, and cutter it as a translation of a separate work?

Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH) - Subject Headings Manual (SHM) H 202 and H 203 Revised
http://librarianshipstudies.blogspot.com/2015/08/library-congress-subject-headings-lcsh.html
#LIBRARIANSHIPSTUDIES #LCSH #SHM

New post of Librarianship Studies & Information Technology blog describing the Revisions to Subject Headings Manual Instruction Sheets on Authority Research (H 203) and Source Citations (H 203)

Note: Subject Headings Manual (SHM) provides guidelines to use Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH). The manual was originally conceived as an in-house procedure manual addressed to cataloging staff at the Library of Congress. From the very beginning, however, the manual included not only procedures and practices to be followed by LC catalogers but also substantive explanations of subject cataloging policy.  Other libraries who wish to catalog in the same manner as the Library of Congress as well as faculty at schools of library science who wish to teach Library of Congress subject cataloging policies to their students should follow the guidelines of the Subject Headings Manual (SHM).

Librarianship Studies & Information Technology Blog will be more focused on the techniques of Library of Congress Classification (LCC) and Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH) by use of Classification & Shelflisting Manual (CSM) and Subject Headings Manual (SHM) and Classification Web tool of Library of Congress, and Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC). Follow Librarianship Studies & Information Technology in Social Media blog to be updated of new items and start/comment on the discussions in the Google+ Community Librarianship Studies & Information Technology and Facebook Group Librarianship Studies & Information Technology.
