I have an OCLC record that lists the author of *The Autobiography of James T. Kirk* as:
Kirk, James T.,|d2233-2371,|eauthor
Those of you who really know RDA…is this how we are supposed to do this? We accord author status to fictional people who haven’t been born yet?
It is interesting to note that this thread is going on at the same time as the other thread “Value of cataloging”.
We are all supposed to believe that Captain Kirk wrote a book. (Sorry, I just don’t believe it)
This is a great example of what makes cataloging really valuable! 🙂
