Authority record needed?

Hi,

I am cataloging an item that has the following on the title page:

"This edition was made possible through financial support from the Equal Access Fund, a program of the
State Bar of California's Legal Services Trust Fund."

It seems like this would support an added entry for sponsoring body.

There is an authority records for the Legal Services Trust Fund, is this specific enough to add $e
sponsoring body? Or would I need to create a subordinate body for the Equal Access Fund portion?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Cutter numbes form translation

I am somewhat behind in my email, and apologize if someone else has already covered this.

The responses below are, of course, entirely correct.  The cutter is based on the French title, since the
work was originally published in French.

The reason for this is to keep the original and the translations together on the shelves.  Works about a
specific title are also cuttered based on the title of the original language of publication, so that the
work, its selections and translations, and works about it, are all together on the shelf for ease of patron browsing.

When info may be wrong, or wrongly transcribed

In re authority rocord: ARN *106883 Patrick, John

In the 670 there is a citation from Imdb that the person was born in 1903
in Carmel, Calif., while others have 1905 and Louisville, Ky.
When searching Imdb today, we find born in 1905 in Louisville, Ky.
Are we allowed to correct the info in the 670 or to honor what the original
creator of the authoity record originally saw in Imdb when she/he cited it?

Error in authority record (notification already sent to OCLC)

Authority record for Howard Richardson, ARN 1878965

Note says he taught at University of California, Northridge. There is no
such UC at Northridge.  There is, however, a California State University at
Northridge.

Source cited is Imdb.  I checked source; source does say it was UC
Northridge as does the summary of his life for his collection of his papers
at the University of Iowa.  Hope these other sources, besides OCLC, correct
their data.

Oversize designations

At Brown University we have three oversize designations, with the first
line of the call number either 1-SIZE, 2-SIZE, or 3-SIZE.

1-SIZE is 27.1 through 33.0 cm. (height or width).
2-SIZE is 33.1 through 44.0 cm, in height, or 33.1 through 40.0 cm. in
width.
3-SIZE is 44.1 cm. and above in height, or 40.1 cm and above in width.

We've used these size designations for at least 90 years across various
libraries in various buildings, and they still work fine. 3-SIZE books are
shelved flat in either atlas cases or extra-wide shelves. In the card
catalog era we used a dash for 1-SIZE, an equal sign for 2-SIZE, and an
equal sign with a third line underneath it for 3-SIZE.
