If I understand these correctly, they are the RDA equivalent headings for this entity. Instead of creating a second authority record, if there was an authority record already present, those testing RDA put the RDA form of the name in the 7XX field. In some cases, the form is the same as the AACR2 form. Once a decision is made on RDA, it’s my understanding that these will go away.
In the latest batch of name authority updates there are a number of records with a change I don't understand. The new records have a new 700 14 field that is the same as the 100 field. Our III system interprets this 700 as a See also reference. What is the purpose of this field?
