[type of data: transcribed data; not repeatable]
Transcribe a statement of responsibility for the work that appears on the original manifestation of the original expression (“first edition”) in the form in which it appears, including both the name of the creator of the work and any term indicating the nature of the function carried out by that person in the creation of the work. Transcribe the statement of responsibility exactly as to wording and spelling but not necessarily as to order. If the statement of responsibility does not appear prominently, but is instead taken from inside the item cataloged, make a note of the source of the statement of responsibility. For works of multiple or mixed responsibility, transcribe each credit, including the name of the person or body and any statement of the function carried out by the person or body in the creation of the work.
