As a librarian I like the idea of using games to tell stories, & as it's the 150th anniversary of Alice in Wonderland I decided to run an online game jam competition around that theme. It's running at the end of June and anyone can enter. More details here: #gamejam

I'm not a librarian but love libraries and really appreciate the work of librarians. Would be glad for your thoughts on this post.
One of the troubling aspects of modern life is how much data about us is stored in various computer data centers. Shopping at my local grocery, I use my shopper card to receive discounts on groceri...

Is it correct to say that LC’s policy according to LC PCC PS 6.27.1.6 is to always treat an original print work published with a commentary (that has its own title) as a compilation and to give analytical access points for the original work and commentary?  This is an example given in the RDA special topics Powerpoint on compilations:
 
“245 00 $a Atiya's journeys : $b a Muslim woman from colonial Bombay to Edwardian Britain / $c Siobhan Lambert-Hurley and Sunil Sharma.
500 ## $a Includes the full English translation of Atiya Fyzee-Rahamin’s Time of education.
700 12 $a Lambert-Hurley, Siobhan. $t Atiya's journeys.
700 12 $aFyzee-Rahamin, Atiya Begum, $d 1876-1967. $t Zamanah-yi tahòsòil. $l English”
 
If this is true, does the policy differ for art catalogs that consist of reproductions of one artist’s works plus commentary on those works?  An example from the RDA special topics Powerpoint on art catalogs given the main entry to the person presented as the author of the commentary:
 
“Catalog presented as the work of the person writing about the art:
 
100 1 $a Bailey, Colin B.
245 10 $a Renoir : $b impressionism and full-length painting / $c Colin B. Bailey”
 
And here’s an example from Voyager of a catalog raisonne of Andy Warhol’s record album covers with reproductions of each album cover and commentaries on them entered under the person who wrote the commentaries (LCCN 2014025267):
 
“100 1 $a Mareìchal, Paul,‡d1965-
245 10 $a Andy Warhol :‡bthe complete commissioned record covers, 1949-1987 : catalogue raisonneì /‡cPaul Mareìchal.

 
700 12 $a Warhol, Andy,‡d1928-1987.‡tAlbum covers.”
 
So, is it safe to say that the main entry for original works plus commentary depends more on the way responsibility is presented on the preferred source for art commentaries than it does for print commentaries?

“A study of the floor plans of the building, and a journey through it, disclose at once the cheering fact that much thought and care have been spent on the needs of the research student.”

Why is this old piece of parchment considered to be such a powerful symbol of our rights and freedoms? Narrated by Monty Python’s Terry Jones, this animation takes you back to medieval times, when England under the reign of Bad King John. It asks why Magna Carta was originally created and what it meant to those living in the 13th century.
