SC&A Bound-With Records and Housed-with Records

"Bound withs" are instances in which two or more separate bibliographic entities have been bound into a single volume after publication. They are of interest to researchers because they can be used to determine possible printing relationships as well as binding affinity among various divisions within a volume.

Sometimes, especially with early imprints, they are easily confused with collective issues. For example, an item that seems to be a "bound with" may in fact be a publication that lacks a collective title, or one in which parts previously published separately have been reissued collectively.

BOUND-WITHS

For items that were bound together after publication, create separate bibliographic records for each title.  Unlike the general collection, SC&A creates separate item records for each bib record created for a bound-with volume. The physical item is shelved under the appropriate call number for the first title. 

Add the following to the records:

Record for first title (a.k.a. parent record):

050/090

Call number of first title

245

First Title

590

Special Collections copy bound with: Title #2 / statement of responsibility. Place : Publisher, YYYY-- Title #3 / statement of responsibility. Place : Publisher, YYYY-- Title #4 / statement of responsibility. Place: Publisher, YYYY. Bound together subsequent to publication.

 

-optional addition in Roger-

787 08

$i Bound with (manifestation): $a Creator of 2nd, etc. work. $t Title of 2nd, etc. work

Exception: titles too numerous to list

If a bound with has 10 or more titles, instead of listing each title in the parent record, simply note the number of titles in the volume.   At their discretion, catalogers may also opt to take this approach for bound with volumes with exceedingly long titles and/or imprints that if listed exhaustively would result in a 590 that is not easy to read. 

590                    

Special Collections copy bound with 57 other titles. Bound together subsequent to publication.

Records for subsequent titles (a.k.a. child records):

050/090         

Call number of first title with suffix "B/W" (e.g., 090 PR1234 $b .B75 H23 1995 B/W)

245

2nd title, etc.

590

Special Collections copy bound with: First title / statement of responsibility. Place : Publisher, YYYY. Bound together subsequent to publication.

 

-optional addition in Roger-

787 08

$i Bound with (manifestation): $a Creator of 1st work. $t Title of 1st work

In cases of doubt of whether the titles were issued together by the publisher, create separate bibliographic records according to the regular "Bound With" directions. In these cases, use the statement “Probably bound together subsequent to publication” at the end of the 590.


HOUSED-WITHS

Sometimes, SC&A houses multiple items together in one envelope/box. In such cases, treat these items as you would a "bound with," with the exception that the 590 note should read: "Special Collections copy housed with: ..." The call number suffix is still B/W. In these cases there is no need to include “Bound together subsequent to publication” in the 590 note.

COLLECTIVE ISSUES (WITHOUT COLLECTIVE TITLES)

For volumes containing multiple bibliographic entities that were bound and issued together by the publisher, create a comprehensive description (i.e., one bib record) for the volume (see RDA 1.5.2).  See RDA 2.3.2.9 for instructions on recording titles of resources lacking a collective title.

050/090

Call number of first title

1xx

Creator of first title

245

List all titles

700 12

$i Container of (work): $a Creator. $t Title for 2nd, etc. works.

 

-or-

730 02 

$i Container of (work): $t Title for 2nd, etc. works.

STREAMERS FOR BOUND-WITHS AND HOUSED-WITHS

***added 12/9/2016***

Create streamer based on the parent record, but do include B/W at the bottom the call number.  (This  will signify to pagers that there are multiple titles bound within the volume.)
