Ashley,

Mike is right.  To retrieve works "about" Victor Davies, the composer, the
access point would be Subject, not Name.

Just been looking through the above and I hope you can
clarify a point for me. On page 15 it says:

  To search for a composition composed by Victor Davies
      Access point [Cross Domain Set] = Name
      Comparison [Utility Set] = Equals
      Format/Structure = inverted order name
      Functional Qualifier = cmp
      Semantic Qualifier = personal
      Term = Davies, Victor

The Cross Domain attribute set says of Name: "A person or
organization associated with the resource." And
http://lcweb.loc.gov/marc/relators/relators.html says
that "cmp" means Composer. So to my mind the above set of
attributes in a search request should also retrieve
works about Victor Davies the composer. Am I wrong?

Regards,

Ashley.
