This facsimile reprint has an added title page (for the new publisher), which is fortunate, as the included facsimile of the title page has part of the author’s name erased:
RDA 126.96.36.199 on recording statement of responsibility for facsimiles and reproductions says to record the statement or statements of responsibility relating to the facsimile or reproduction, so I got to use the correct version:
245 10 ǂa Nuove curiosità storiche / ǂc Benedetto Croce.
It also sayes to record any statement of responsibility relating to the original manifestation as a statement of responsibility of a related manifestation. I could have done so as described in RDA 27.1 but decided against it; as it actually is correct on the original piece (which I also have in hand).
This CD-ROM was sent to cataloging; it is a database with a product key allowing it to be installed/used on one computer. Though we could have cataloged the database on the media in hand, it would not be useful to our patrons, as it cannot circulate or be used in that format in the library. We forwarded it on to the branch library, who will work with Library IT to get it installed, and we will catalog it as an electronic resource once we know more details.
One exciting part of pulling all of your data into a single discovery service is that, when you see wacky things in the display, it’s not immediately obvious where they came from! From a meeting yesterday, after a random search:
“Does that say JERK? Wait, ‘This collection is rad?’ Is someone playing a joke? How long ago? Is that from the vendor, or did it migrate in from our SFX? How many journals is this showing up on?“
After the meeting while we were all hunting through various systems, somebody remembered that our trainer had added those notes, demonstrating public notes, and that they were only showing up on the test system. Whew.

RDA 188.8.131.52 on what to do when the Date of Publication is not identified says to supply the date or approximate date of publication; there is no provision for recording a phrase like “[date of publication no identified]” or similar.
This volume had no date for publication, copyright, distribution, manufacture, and neitherpublisher mentions the book on the web site, so we looked to the content to determine an approximate date.
One of the chapters includes a brief biography of Ni Zhengyu including the fact that he passed away in 2003. This was the latest date we found, so we recorded it as:
505 0_ ǂa [v. 1]. Kim House 1987 2011 -- [v. 2]. House in Nipponbashi
-- [v. 3]. House in Higashi-Osaka, House in Shimogamo --
[v. 4]. House in Fukaya -- [v. 5]. House in Kurakuen I, II --
[v. 6]. House in Wakayama -- [v. 7]. Hu-Tong House --
[v. 8]. House on Musashino-Hills -- [v. 9]. Glashaus --
[v. 10]. House in Yamanoi.
I also included title added entries for each title:
700 12 ǂa Kishi, Warō, ǂd 1950- ǂt Kim House 1987 2011.
710 12 ǂa Kishi, Warō, ǂd 1950- ǂt House in Nipponbashi.
in part to provide a good description, but also because they seem like likely searches for other catalogers with the volumes in hand.
