Re: 041 needed?? Steve Shadle 31 Oct 2003 15:51 UTC

Rose -- 1st indicator 1 is used if the *work* (meaning the serial itself)
is a translation, not for the case of a parallel title.  So unless you
know the serial is issued in another language (and what you have in your
hands is a translation), then use 1st indicator 0.

Also, if the serial is not a translation and entirely in English (no
Eskimo contents or summaries), then you wouldn't use an 041; FF language
code eng would be sufficient.  Also, if the language of the text is
predominantly English, the English title would be chosen as the title
proper (AACR 1.1B).

Since the 245 would have both English and Eskimo, you would probably want
a "546 In English."  since the title statement would give the impression
the serial is in both English and Eskimo (LCRI 1.7B2).

Hope this helps.  Let me know if I've misunderstood anything.  --Steve
