Abstract

Library of Congress Rule Interpretation (LCRI) 25.5B, Appendix I contains Program for Cooperative Cataloging (PCC) principles for constructing uniform titles for motion pictures, television, and radio programs. Originally designed for PCC libraries in providing uniform title access for these materials, it has also been adopted by non-PCC institutions. Focusing on uniform title access for television programs, this article will show that these PCC principles have largely been unapplied; and, when they are applied, it is principally
by non-PCC institutions. The article concludes with a discussion onthe future application of these principles for preferred access points in Resource Description and Access (RDA).
