Illustrator Added Entries
Descriptive Cataloging | Children’s and Young Adults’ Cataloging Program (CYAC)
Illustrations are a prominent part of children’s and young adults' material and access for them is provided on CYAC records. The use of the relator code “ill.” after the name of the illustrators identifies their contribution to the work. Names of significant contributors should always receive access via a 700 field. Though there is no implied judgment of the various design tasks, not all require the notation of the relator code. The following list helps with decisions about which roles or activities qualify a person for the “ill.” designation.
|do NOT add ill. relator code to added entry||add ill. relator code to added entry|
|art direction||background illustrations by|
|compiler of illustrations||computer graphics by|
|corporate bodies/ design studio||cover illustration|
|pictures adapted by (illustrations adapted for print from film)||illustrator|
|decorations in the style of another artist *both artists|
|rendered for coloring by|
|reproduction illustrations by|
decorations by: Depends on type of illustration. If the decorations are actual pictures, no matter their size, decorator should get an ill. added entry. For other decorations, we decide if they are significant enough to warrant the added entry on a case-by-case basis.
Note that the following functions are NOT given an added entry: penciled by, inker, illustrator same as compiler or editor, illustrator same as main entry, colorist, and colored by.
