2.3.1 Subsidiary creators [Person or corporate body relationship to expression]

[type of data: composed data—controlled terms (non-literal typed); repeatable] Provide access under identifiers for subsidiary creators, such as editors, performers, translators, or illustrators, using the rules in Section 7 to create the identifiers. Beware: Editors, performers, artists, etc. who are primarily responsible for the work should not be linked to the expression, but to the work.

Optionally, provide access under the publishers/distributors/broadcasters of the very first manifestation of the expression ever to appear.

Include a relator term or terms from the following list if possible. Choose the most specific term, if possible. If none of these terms apply, compose a term to describe the relationship between the subsidiary creator and the expression being cataloged. If the relationship is ambiguous, do not include a relator term:

annotator
arranger
author of introduction, foreword, afterword, colophon, etc.
book designer
commentator
conductor
designer
distributor (of expression)
editor
engraver
etcher
host
illustrator
instrumentalist
lithographer
musician
performer
presenter (of expression)
sound recording producer
translator
vocalist
