Cataloguing Commission: Sub-Commission on UNIMARC


Doris, Isabelle Gauchet, Gentili-Tedeschi, Massimo, Fontes Artis Musicae


On 17 July 2014, the IAML Sub-commission on UNIMARC gathered in Antwerp for its twelfth annual meeting.

Two sessions were held on the same day. Session 1 was a working meeting held on 17 July, chaired by Isabelle Gauchet Doris.

The first session was attended by 6 participants. The agenda was as follows:

--Update the list of codes

--Translation of the list of codes

--Italian proposal for a new field for the characters (623 field)

1. Updating the list of codes

There is not so far a specific code for "cristal Baschet" (crystal BASCHET) which, according to sources, is classified either in the family of vergeophones or timbral percussion. After discussion, it was decided to create a specific code rather than a generic code "vergeophone" this family gathering a variety of instruments.

It remains to determine to which category this code should be linked:

A/7. Percussion: eg. pcb or

A/9. Miscellaneous, other, unspecified instruments: eg. mcb

Action: to contact a BASCHET structures specialist for advice.

2. Translation of the list of codes

A complete translation into Portuguese of the list of codes was conducted by the IAML Portuguese Group.

The translated words will be integrated into the database by Massimo Gentili-Tedeschi.

In the context of the linked data, the list needs to be revised to remove all the occurrences "multilingual" (qualifying a term identical in several languages) and record the term in each language specifying that language (German / Italian / English / French). Eg. "sonata" multilingual should be replaced by:

"sonata" English

"sonata" Italian

The database contains 51 occurrences "multilingual".

Then a definition of each coded instrument will have to be added.

3. Italian proposal for a new field for character (623)

The Italian proposal, which is connected with the new RISM project (Libretto project), has been presented. It concerns the creation of a new field to identify and describe the characters and link them to the corresponding performers (by subfield $ 6 connected to 7xx "Uniform personal name heading").

The first version of the proposal was reviewed and several amendments and additions proposed.

Some issues were discussed: How to deal with characters not identified by a proper name (eg. Angel)? Collective characters? A note to clarify the uses (note on field content) seems to be the most appropriate solution.

The new proposed field contains subfields for the name of the character, its attributes and indications of links with other characters, the voice range (in textual and coded form), and a link to the name of the performer, if present on the source and linked to the bibliographic record. …
