RDA provides instructions for the following relationship types: (a) Relationships between resources and persons, families and corporate bodies; (b) Relationships between works, expressions, manifestations, and items; and (c) Relationships between persons, families, and corporate bodies.






The LC RDA training materials give below information about relationships in RDA:

Relationships in RDA

This module is an overview of relationships expressed in bibliographic records, with some information about relationships in authority records which are discussed in greater detail in modules 5 and 6.  This module is comparatively short, because only a few of the possible relationships are core elements for LC. However, relating entities is an important goal of RDA and there are many types of bibliographic relationships you could provide in bibliographic and authority records to support the needs of users. It is important that you use cataloger’s judgment and give careful consideration to providing those additional data elements when they are needed to enable a user to find, identify, and obtain a specific resource.

Two Basic Goals of RDA Structure

One goal of RDA is to identify attributes or characteristics of works, expressions, manifestations, items persons, corporate bodies, and families.  The other goal is relating these entities.

Expressing relationships in bibliographic and authority records helps users find what they want and lets users know about other available resources.


This module is organized by FRBR relationships in RDA and how they are expressed in the catalog records you create.

  • Persons, Families, and Corporate Bodies: how these entities relate to a resource (Work, Expression, Manifestation, Item)
  • Works, Expressions, Manifestations, Items: how these entities relate to each other
  • Persons, Families, and Corporate Bodies: how these entities relate to each other

Relationships Consist of Two Parts

1. The entities being related: Work, Expression, Manifestation, Item, Person, Family, and Corporate Body
2. The type of relationship

Entities are identified by an authorized access point (what we used to call a heading) and are coded in 1XX, 2XX, and 7XX fields.  Other identifiers for the entity may also be included in the record such as an LCCN, an ISBN or a URI (universal resource identifier).

The type of relationship is stated in a term or code that says what the relationship is, or what role a person, corporate body, or family plays with respect to a particular work or expression or manifestation or item. The terms can be relationship designators that are listed in the appendices to RDA or may be expressed by equivalent coding in MARC 21. A description (note) may also provide identification of entities and information about the type of relationship among them. 

Relationship Designators

Relationship designators are terms used to describe relationships among resources, persons, families, and corporate bodies. The terms describe relationships between entities represented by authorized access points, descriptions, and/or identifiers.

The RDA relationship designators are located in three appendices for different categories of relationships and are compiled in open lists in RDA.

Instruction for open RDA vocabulary lists: apply cataloger’s judgment about using a new term if an appropriate term is not in the list; notify PSD of new terms used. (LCPS for 0.12).

Appendix I:    terms which relate resources to Persons, Families, and Corporate Bodies. For example, the designator “author” expresses the relationship between the creator of a primarily textual work and the work itself.
Note:               Relationship designators in Appendix I are used only in bibliographic records.

Appendix J:   terms which relate Works, Expressions, Manifestations, and Items to each other. For example, the designator “adaptation” may be used to express a relationship from a work “based on” a work and the original work.
Note:   Relationship designators in Appendix J are used in both bibliographic and authority records.

Appendix K: terms which relate Persons, Families, and Corporate Bodies to each other. For example, the designator “alternate identity” relates a pseudonymous or other identity assumed by a person to the real person. The designator “real identity” relates the real person to an assumed alternate identity.
Note:   Relationship designators in Appendix K are used only in name authority records (formerly known as “see also” references).

The list of terms for relationship designators in RDA can be used at a general level or a specific level.  For example, in Appendix I.2.1 Relationship designators for creators include broad terms such as “artist” and narrower terms such as “sculptor.”

In addition to the RDA relationship designators, special format catalogers at LC might also use relator terms in bibliographic records from other vocabulary lists (LCPS for 0.12).
