Citing Names Not in Nominative Form

When citing names that do not appear in nominative form, use a mark of omission to indicate that the text that grammatically “explains” the non-nominative form has been omitted. Do this for usage on the item in hand as well as for usage found in bibliographic files or in reference sources. Create a variant access point from the nominative form of the name if it differs from the authorized access point. Do not make variant access points for non-nominative forms of names.

Note: Example 2 is illustrative of this guidance only; other aspects of the record do not necessarily conform to current NACO standards.
