Algorithm - Major Processing Steps

  1. Contributor Record Creation
    • Check V2 Database for duplicate
    • Query Authority File
    • Create Record and Map from Name Authority Record and/or MARC bib record (Mapping Document)
  2. Work Record Creation
    • Identify using work-identification algorithm (Work Identification Algorithm)
    • Check V2 Database for duplicate
    • Query Authority File
    • Create Record and Map from Name/Title Authority Record and MARC bib record (Mapping Document)
  3. Container Record Creation
  4. Instantiation Record Creation (for those works created above)
    • Create Record and Map from Work Record and MARC bib record (Mapping Document )
    • Attach to Container Record
  5. Container Record Mapping (second pass, to account for instantiations not created)
    • Map from MARC bib record (attach Contributors directly to container) (Mapping Document )

* This text would be taken from |m. This could be disregarded when determining collective title status, unless |n and/or |p are present (thus meaning title is not collective)

** "Sonatas, violoncello, piano" may be a specific work title if composer wrote more than one sonata but only one for violoncello and piano. If the composer wrote more than one sonata for violoncello and piano, than this is a collective title. The same is true of concertos, suites, etc. Cannot yet devise a way around this ambiguity in uniform title nomenclature.
