LC-PCC PS for 9.3.4.3 - LC practice/PCC practice: When recording the period of activity, use “active” and “century” rather than the abbreviations “fl.” and “cent.” The term "active" should appear before the first period of activity date (e.g., "active 12th century"), unless another term such as "jin shi" is used.


RDA 9.3.4.3 is for Recording Period of Activity of Person. It suggests that If a date of birth and a date of death are both unknown, record a date or range of dates indicative of the period in which the person was active.


EXAMPLES

1705

1687–1709

1682–1723?

11 B.C.–12 A.D.

approximately 1400

approximately 494 B.C.–approximately 467 B.C.

1688–approximately 1712

jin shi 1499
Date at which a Chinese literary degree was conferred

If it is not possible to establish specific years of activity, record the century or centuries in which the person was active.

EXAMPLES

19th century

13th century–14th century

7th century B.C.

1st century B.C.–1st century A.D.
