22.1. GENERAL RULE.
"AACR 2 Compatible" Headings
1) General. All headings newly coded to AACR2 after August 1982 will be done in accord with
AACR2 and existing LC policy and will be designated "AACR2" (with one exception). A heading already
coded "AACR2 compatible" will continue to be used in its existing form in post-August 1982 cataloging.
A heading for a uniform title coded after August 1982 will be coded "AACR2 compatible" if it is entered
under a name heading that has already been coded "AACR2 compatible."
Before September 1982, headings were coded "AACR2 compatible" if they had been established
before 1981 and fell into one or more of the categories listed below. (Exceptions to this policy are uniform
titles established after 1980 that were entered under a name heading that has already been coded "AACR2
2) Categories coded " AACR2 compatible." The categories of headings that were coded "AACR
2 compatible" were as follows:
a) Hyphens. The existing heading lacked a hyphen between forenames or compound
surnames that would be present in the AACR 2 form.
compatible heading: 100 1/b
