Proposal No. 2021-09: Recording the Mode of Issuance for Manifestations

1. BACKGROUND

RDA contains the element "mode of issuance". The values for this element can be recorded in the MARC 21 Bibliographic Format using a combination of codes in LDR character positions 07 (Bibliographic level) and 19 (Multipart resource record level). However, the RDA Toolkit Restructure and Redesign Project (3R) has brought about a change to the scope of mode of issuance; the values associated with it have likewise changed, meaning that they no longer correspond to the MARC 21 LDR codes described above. These changes relate to 3R's goal of implementing the IFLA Library Reference Model in RDA. Whereas the previous RDA element "mode of issuance" conflated aspects of carrier data (single/multiple unit) and content data (static/issued over time), 3R rescopes mode of issuance and introduces the new "extension plan" element in order to make those distinctions explicit. Henceforward, the mode of issuance element will only be used to make statements regarding whether a manifestation is issued in one unit or more than one unit, regardless of whether it was issued over time or at a single point in time; this latter aspect of bibliographic description will be handled by the extension plan.

In order to implement the redefined element "mode of issuance" in MARC 21, it would be desirable to define a new field and subfields for the purpose. This, in combination with a separate field defined for extension plan, would then be capable of reflecting the distinct attributes of diachronic resources as recognized by the RDA Steering Committee and the ISSN International Centre. In addition, the mode of issuance element could be expressed using the controlled vocabulary and IRIs sourced from the RDA Registry. These offer the means to enhance the functionality of information recorded in a MARC 21 environment and also to exploit it for linked data purposes. RDA does not make the recording of mode of issuance information a required aspect of resource description. The community may choose not to record this element in circumstances where it does not correspond with a particular record model or community of practice.

2. DISCUSSION

2.1. Changes to Mode of Issuance Definition and Scope

The new RDA Toolkit defines mode of issuance as:

"A categorization reflecting whether a manifestation is issued in one or more units."
(cf. https://beta.rdatoolkit.org/en-US_ala-11f6e100-836f-3c70-9ab0-99714519a179)

The scope of this definition is narrower than that previously expressed by RDA:

"A categorization reflecting whether a resource is issued in one or more parts, the way it is updated, and whether its termination is predetermined or not."
(cf. http://access.rdatoolkit.org/rdachp2_rda2-8389.html)

This change in scope reflects RDA's aim of implementing IFLA's Library Reference Model. As noted in an RSC discussion paper entitled "Issues on IFLA-LRM alignment for serials and other continuing resources", one outcome of how the LRM approaches "resources without a pre-determined conclusion is that most data elements should be related to the level of the work".

The paper continues by observing that:

"This has a direct effect on the "mode of issuance": in the current RDA, the "mode of issuance" is a manifestation-level element (see 2.13): the mode of issuance covers different aspects such as the "extension termination" (determinate or indeterminate), the "extension mode" (succession or integration) or the number of units or carriers. It is recognized by RSC and ISSN IC that the two first aspects are related to the work, while only the third is related to the manifestation.

It is therefore proposed to distinguish between:

(cf. http://www.rda-rsc.org/sites/all/files/RSC-Chair-20.pdf)

In view of this analysis, the new RDA Toolkit defines the element "extension plan" to encompass concepts "extension mode" and "extension termination". Meanwhile, the narrower scope of  "mode of issuance" is reflected not only in its changed definition, but also by the fewer controlled terms which may be used to express it.

2.2. Changes to the Types of Mode of Issuance

The values used to express "mode of issuance" in the new RDA Toolkit have been reduced in number and are now binary in nature, as expressed below:

multiple unit
A mode of issuance of a manifestation that is issued as a multipart physical unit or intangible multipart logical unit.
Use for:multipart monograph

single unit
A mode of issuance of a manifestation that is issued as a single physical unit or intangible single logical unit.
A single volume, a file available online, etc., are included.

By contrast, RDA previously expressed four different categories of mode of issuance, as expressed below:

integrating resource
A mode of issuance of a manifestation that is added to or changed by means of updates that do not remain discrete but are integrated into the whole.
A loose-leaf manual that is updated by means of replacement pages, a website that is updated continuously, etc., are included.

multipart monograph
A mode of issuance of a manifestation issued in two or more parts, either simultaneously or successively, that is complete or intended to be completed within a finite number of parts.
A dictionary in two volumes, three audiocassettes issued as a set, etc., are included.

serial
A mode of issuance of a manifestation issued in successive parts, usually bearing numbering, that has no predetermined conclusion.
A serial includes a periodical, monographic series, newspaper, etc. Reproductions of serials and resources that exhibit characteristics of serials, such as successive issues, numbering, and frequency, but whose duration is limited, such as newsletters of events, are also included.

single unit
A mode of issuance of a manifestation that is issued either as a single physical unit or, in the case of an intangible manifestation, as a single logical unit.
A single volume, a file available online, etc., are included.

The new RDA Toolkit removes values for multipart monograph, integrating resource and serial from the controlled vocabulary used to express "mode of issuance" ; these concepts are covered instead by the controlled vocabulary for "extension plan". As a result of this change, values associated with mode of issuance can only be used to make assertions about the carrier characteristics of a resource (i.e., whether the resource being described consists of one or more units). Meanwhile, the anticipated behavior of the resource is expressed separately as an extension plan.

2.3. Mode of Issuance and Physical/Logical Units

The new RDA Toolkit definitions for single unit and multiple unit modes of issuance encompass both the concepts of physical units and logical units. Previously, the RDA Toolkit only referenced these concepts in the context of single unit manifestations. The definition and scope of physical and logical units is set out in MARC discussion paper 2020-DP16.This paper also explores the significance of these concepts in a context of describing a resource which undergoes a change of  carrier over time.

2.4. Mode of Issuance and the MARC 21 Bibliographic Format LDR

Changes made to "mode of issuance" in the new RDA mean that its controlled vocabulary is no longer compatible with the MARC 21 Bibliographic Format codes expressed in LDR field character positions 07 (Bibliographic level) and 19 (Multipart resource record level).

The LDR 07 includes the following values:

i - Integrating resource
Bibliographic resource that is added to or changed by means of updates that do not remain discrete and are integrated into the whole. Examples include updating loose-leafs and updating Web sites.
Integrating resources may be finite or continuing.

m - Monograph/Item
Item either complete in one part (e.g., a single monograph, a single map, a single manuscript, etc.) or intended to be completed, in a finite number of separate parts (e.g., a multivolume monograph, a sound recording with multiple tracks, etc.).

s - Serial
Bibliographic item issued in successive parts bearing numerical or chronological designations and intended to be continued indefinitely. Includes periodicals; newspapers; annuals (reports, yearbooks, etc.); the journals, memoirs, proceedings, transactions, etc., of societies; and numbered monographic series, etc.

It is notable that, whereas the values given above all make assertions regarding the anticipated behaviors of a resource, the revised mode of issuance values "single unit" and "multiple unit" can only be used to describe its manifestation's carrier characteristics; the intention to extend the content of a work is a concept which is addressed by "extension plan".

The LDR 19 includes the following values:

a - Set
Record is for a set consisting of multiple items.

b - Part with independent title
The record is for a resource which is part of a set and has a title that allows it to be independent of the set record.

c - Part with dependent title
The record is for a resource which is part of a set but has a title that makes it dependent on the set record to understand its context.

Again, whereas the above values all make assertions regarding the completeness of a resource, the revised mode of issuance values "single unit" and "multiple unit" can only be used to describe a resource's carrier characteristics; the concept of a set, (i.e., whether a resource is intended to be realized in multiple distinct expressions that are embodied during a closed timespan) are addressed by the extension plan value "successive determinate plan".

It is not suggested that existing MARC 21 LDR values should be amended in order to accommodate the revised mode of issuance element and its associated values; such an approach may lead to problems of backwards compatibility with MARC 21 legacy data. In addition, the MARC 21 LDR only permits data to be recorded using one of the four recording methods set out by the new RDA: i.e., identifier. However, mode of issuance may be recorded using not only this recording method, but also using an unstructured description, a structured description and an IRI. A 500 note could be used to record unstructured information regarding a mode of issuance, but in order to record structured information and an IRI, then a new field would be desirable. Like the 335 field which has recently been defined to carry structured information and an IRI for extension plan, such a new field would offer the benefit of specificity. Unlike extension plan, it would only be necessary to define a field for mode of issuance in the Bibliographic format and not the Authority format. This is because mode of issuance is an element which belongs to the manifestation entity in RDA, whereas extension plan is a work level element.

2.5 Mode of Issuance and Repeatability

The only present source of structured information and IRIs for mode of issuance is the RDA Registry. However, other sources of controlled terminology and URIs for this element may emerge within the cataloging community over time. For example, id.loc.gov. may be used to host a version of the mode of issuance vocabulary which includes MARC code equivalent values as well as controlled terms and URIs. If this is the case, then it would be necessary to make any field which is defined for carrying the mode of issuance element repeatable. This would be consistent with the practice for coding URIs for vocabularies maintained by different agencies set out in MARC Proposal 2015-07.  This notes that:

"using a field which contains both an RDA Registry URI and a MARC21 code as a source [of] linked data may lead to semantic inconsistency over time. The same condition may apply to a field which contains both an RDA Registry and an id.loc.gov URI."

It is not suggested that a field defined for recording mode of issuance information is made repeatable for any purpose other than those which are set out above (i.e., recording URIs for mode of issuance from separate sources; recording a controlled term from one source and a coded equivalent value from another). It may be considered that in describing a resource as an aggregate, then it would be desirable to repeat the mode of issuance for different components of that aggregate. However, as with the extension plan element, repeating mode of issuance at the individual resource description level may lead to the creation of ambiguous data which is confusing to the end user. For example, if the value "single unit" were repeated, then this could disguise the fact that a resource is actually composed of multiple units; equally, if both the values "single unit" and "multiple unit" were assigned to the same description, then catalog searches or management statistics for single unit resources could erroneously include results for multiple units. If it is felt necessary to describe the modes of issuance which pertain to different components of the same aggregate distinctly, then it would be preferable that these are the subject of separate resource descriptions. If a particular record model or community of practise does not require aggregate resources to be cataloged using separate descriptions under such circumstances, then it may be better that the mode of issuance is not recorded at all.

 2.6. Mode of Issuance and Changes Occurring Over Time

Circumstances may arise in the cataloging process where the mode of issuance for a resource is perceived to change over time. However, there is no requirement that a former mode of issuance is recorded as part of the resource description process. If, for example, the description of a serial is conducted using the first issue of that serial, then it might be considered that the appropriate value recorded for mode of issuance would be "single unit" rather than "multiple unit"; under these circumstances, if subsequent issues of the serial were received, then the single unit value could be assigned a former status at that point. However, it should be noted that mode of issuance is a manifestation and not an item level element; cataloging decisions do not have to be based simply on the number of physical units in hand. Instead, assumptions can be made about the availability of additional units based on evidence provided by the manifestation or from other reference sources. Hence, the presence of numbering information such as "Volume 1" implies the possibility of there being at least a "Volume 2" either already available (although not in hand) or potentially available in the future. It is therefore justifiable to assign “multiple unit” as a value for mode of issuance before multiple units have been received.

3. PROPOSED CHANGES

Tag 334 is proposed for the new element mode of issuance. Other fields in the 33X range are already used to express RDA controlled vocabularies. Field 335 has been defined to code the element extension plan following the acceptance by MAC of Proposal 2020-07; if mode of issuance is also to be accommodated, then it would make sense for both of these fields to occupy the same range. During the discussion of 2021-DP16, MAC also agreed that 334 represents a reasonable location for recording mode of issuance information.

Define field 334 in the MARC 21 Bibliographic Formats as follows:

334  Mode of Issuance (R)

Field Definition and Scope
A categorization reflecting whether a manifestation is issued in one or more units.

Indicators
Both indicator positions are undefined; each contains a blank (#).

Subfield codes

$a – Mode of issuance term (NR)
Mode of issuance of the manifestation being described.

$b – Mode of issuance code (NR)
Code for the mode of issuance of the manifestation.

$0 - Authority record control number or standard number (R)
See description of this subfield in Appendix A: Control Subfields.

$1 - Real World Object URI (R)
See description of this subfield in Appendix A: Control Subfields.

$2 - Source (NR)
MARC code that identifies the source of the term or code used to record the mode of issuance information.

$6 - Linkage (NR)
See description of this subfield in Appendix A: Control Subfields.

$8 - Field link and sequence number (R)
See description of this subfield in Appendix A: Control Subfields.

4. EXAMPLES

The examples given below model the usage of field 334 to record mode of issuance in the MARC 21 Bibliographic Format. The subfield $2 code "rdami" is modeled on the anticipated curie for RDA Registry URIs associated with the vocabulary encoding scheme for mode of issuance. In each case, the proposed extension plan is recorded in field 335 to provide additional context.

For purposes of brevity, the examples do not include formatted contents notes or subject headings. These would offer no additional value in terms of contextual information.
