HOUSTON, WE HAVE A
PROBLEM
• Three headings for
same person
• Pseudonym and real
name not linked
• Unauthorized heading
used
AUTHORITY CONTROL IS:
• the process of maintaining consistency in
the verbal form used to represent an access
point in a catalog
• the further process of providing
interconnections among names, works, and
subjects which display any significant
relationship
AUTHORITY CONTROL IS
• the process of ensuring that every entry –
name, uniform title, series, or subject – that
is selected as an access point for the catalog
is unique and does not conflict, by being
identical, with any other entry that is
already in the catalog or may be included at
a later date.
Goals of Authority Control
• Facilitate the identifying
and collocating functions
of the catalog
• Users can assume that a
consistent term or
phrase will refer to a
particular name, title or
subject, and that
variations will be
brought together under
the one form
CHARLES AMNI CUTTER (1876)
PURPOSES OF A CATALOG
1. TO ENABLE A PERSON TO FIND A
DOCUMENT OF WHICH
THE AUTHOR, OR
THE TITLE, OR
THE SUBJECT IS KNOWN
2. TO SHOW WHAT THE LIBRARY
HAS
BY A GIVEN AUTHOR
ON A GIVEN SUBJECT
IN A GIVEN KIND OF
LITERATURE
3. TO ASSIST IN THE CHOICE OF A
DOCUMENT
AS TO ITS EDITION
AS TO ITS CHARACTER

What Needs to Be Controlled?
•
•
•
•
•
Subject terms
Personal names
Corporate names
Geographic places
Titles
Problems with Personal Names
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Pseudonym or pen name
Initialized first name
Omitted first name
Non-roman alphabets
Married name vs. maiden name
Compound surname
Names with nobility
Changed names
Authority Control
Not so difficult: 66% of all
authors write only one book in
one edition. But the remaining
34% can be very difficult-changing names, variations,
translations, different alphabets,
etc.
Patterns of Chinese Names
• Lin Yu-tang
• Ching-chun Hsieh
• Nelson Chou
• Jack Kai-tung Huang
• Nancy Ou-lan Hu Chou
• Surname first
• Surname last
• Chinese first name
dropped
• English first name adopted
without dropping Chinese
first name
• Woman’s married name
with English first name
Married name vs. Maiden Name
• Good example:
• Elizabeth Taylor

• Uniformity
• Verification
• Linkage
Authority Work
• Includes the research work and intellectual effort
involved in creating and updating authority records
• Determines if a relationship exists between names or
subject heading terms
• Establishes and links the names that could refer to the
same person
• Establishes relationships between subject heading
terms
• Includes recording the authority data of preferred
form, variants, history, scope, and links to other
authority records
Steps of Authority Work
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Researching for variants
Choosing one among many
Analyzing parts of the term
Adding, omitting or modifying the term
Handling special language cases
Linking the used and the unused
Document the process

SYNDETIC STRUCTURE
• Means “Connective” and is derived from
classical Greek
• Conceived by Charles Cutter who defined
syndetic catalog as “that kind of dictionary
catalog which binds its entries together by
means of cross-references so as to form a
whole.”
• Great cocktail party term
How would you search following
in catalog?

Authority Record
• Result of authority work
• A record which shows a heading in the form
established for use in the catalog
• Lists cross-references to be made to and
from the heading
• Cites the sources consulted in establishing
the heading

Authority File
• Set of authority records
• Lists the names, series and subject headings
that have been established and used in a
catalog and provides links to related subject
headings, titles and names
Authority Files
• Needed for efficient cataloging and
searching in library networks
• Reduce effort involved in entering headings
• Avoid duplication of work
• Improve the quality of catalogs
Four Functions of Authority Files
• Authority function: support consistency of
headings
• Finding function: provide links from
variants and other authorized headings
• Information function: show usage and scope
of headings
• Maintenance function: support manual and
automatic error detection and correction
Advantages of Authority Control
• Collecting, recording and maintaining
authoritative forms of headings
• Linking variant forms of headings together
• Providing consistency and verification upon
creating bibliographic records
• Automatic verification
• Global change and correction
• Shared authority files
• Linkage between authority files and bibliographic
records
Problems with Corporate Names
•
•
•
•
•
Name change
Names in different languages
Variant names
Brief form of names
Subordinate and related bodies
