Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The 336, 337 and 338 fields have been defined in MARC21 to replace the following AACR2 element:

    • A.

      ISBD

    • B.

      GMD

    • C.

      Collation

    • D.

      Series

    Correct Answer
    B. GMD
    Explanation
    The 336, 337, and 338 fields in MARC21 have been introduced to replace the GMD (General Material Designation) element in AACR2. GMD was used in AACR2 to provide information about the physical format or carrier of a resource, such as "DVD" or "CD-ROM." In MARC21, the GMD element has been replaced by the more specific and standardized fields 336 (Content Type), 337 (Media Type), and 338 (Carrier Type), which provide more detailed and standardized information about the content, media, and carrier of a resource.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    This replacement (the replacement of the answer to question one above) with the 336, 337 and 338 fields IN  MARC21 and the instructions in RDA was the result of an ongoing debate about the efficacy of AACR2 to record the following 2 characteristics:

    • A.

      Collation versus series

    • B.

      Content versus carrier

    • C.

      Height versus width

    • D.

      Format versus inclusions

    Correct Answer
    B. Content versus carrier
    Explanation
    The replacement of the answer to question one with the 336, 337, and 338 fields in MARC21 and the instructions in RDA was a result of an ongoing debate about the efficacy of AACR2 to record the characteristics of content versus carrier. This suggests that there was a need for a more effective way to differentiate and describe the content of a resource separately from its carrier or physical format.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Field 337 is used to record

    • A.

      Media type

    • B.

      Content type

    • C.

      Carrier type

    Correct Answer
    A. Media type
    Explanation
    Field 337 is used to record the media type of a resource. This refers to the physical or digital format in which the resource is presented or stored. It helps to classify and describe the nature of the resource, such as whether it is a book, DVD, audio recording, or online resource. By recording the media type in Field 337, it allows for easier retrieval and organization of resources based on their format.

    The following two characteristics are CORE (mandatory to record) in RDA:  

    • A.

      Carrier and media

    • B.

      Content and carrier

    • C.

      Media and content

    The correct answer is "Content and carrier". In Resource Description and Access (RDA), these two characteristics are considered core and mandatory to record. "Content" refers to the intellectual or artistic content of a resource, while "carrier" refers to the physical or digital form in which the content is presented. Both of these characteristics are important for accurately describing and organizing resources in library catalogs and databases.

    If the resource being described is a multipart item record the following content type:

    • A.

      Record as many terms as are applicable to the resource being described.

    • B.

      Record only the content type that applies to the predominant part of the resource (if there is a predominant part)

    • C.

      Record the content types that apply to the most substantial parts of the resource (including the predominant part, if there is one)

    • D.

      Any of the above it being understood that the second and third choices are Alternatives (options)

    Correct Answer
    D. Any of the above it being understood that the second and third choices are Alternatives (options)
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that any of the above options are acceptable, as long as it is understood that the second and third choices are alternatives. This means that when describing a multipart item record, you can record as many terms as are applicable to the resource, but you should only record the content type that applies to the predominant part of the resource if there is one. Additionally, you should record the content types that apply to the most substantial parts of the resource, including the predominant part if there is one.

    If the resource being described is a multipart item record the following media t type:

    • A.

      Record as many terms as are applicable to the resource being described.

    • B.

      Record only the media type that applies to the predominant part of the resource (if there is a predominant part)

    • C.

      Record only the media types that apply to the most substantial parts of the resource (including the predominant part, if there is one)

    • D.

      Any of the above it being understood that the second and third choices are Alternatives (options) that may not be applied locally

    Correct Answer
    D. Any of the above it being understood that the second and third choices are Alternatives (options) that may not be applied locally
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Any of the above it being understood that the second and third choices are Alternatives (options) that may not be applied locally." This means that when describing a multipart item record, you can record as many applicable media types as necessary. If there is a predominant part, you should record the media type that applies to that part. Additionally, you should record the media types that apply to the most substantial parts of the resource, including the predominant part. However, it is also mentioned that these choices may not be applied locally, indicating that there may be variations in how this is implemented in different contexts.

    Correct Answer
    D. Any of the above it being understood that the second and third choices are Alternatives (options) that may not be applied locally
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Any of the above it being understood that the second and third choices are Alternatives (options) that may not be applied locally." This means that when describing a multipart item, you should record as many applicable carrier types as possible. If there is a predominant part, record the carrier type that applies to it. Additionally, record the carrier types that apply to the most substantial parts of the resource. However, it is understood that the second and third choices may not always be applicable in every local situation.
