2.2.3 Statement of responsibility for the expression

[type of data: transcribed data (literal); not repeatable]

Functions:

  • To distinguish one expression from another and to identify the particular expression being described
  • To characterize the expression by indicating which subsidiary creators (translators, editors, illustrators, etc.) were responsible for its creation
  • To provide evidence for the determination of the name commonly known for personal and corporate subsidiary creators (i.e., creators of the expression)

Transcribe statements of responsibility for the expression in the form in which they appear. If the statement of subsidiary responsibility does not appear prominently, but is instead taken from inside the item, make a note of the source of the statement of subsidiary responsibility.

EXAMPLES:

illustrated by John Tenniel
