Main entry [主款目]

編目(cataloging)

Svenonius (20001)) 認為主款目(main entry)的定義混亂而分歧,包含了以下三種不同的定義:

  • 對文件的描述(這個意義已經不再被使用)
    A description of a document, in particular its full description (a meaning that is now obsolete);
  • 最常被取用的文件屬性,或稱為主檢索點,通常是人名、團體名、題名
    The attribute of a document by which it is most often accessed, its so-called main access point, such as a person, corporate body, or title.
  • 作品的正規化題名
    A work, which is designated either by a normalized name title or by a normalized title.
