Admins: How multiple authors are handled in ebrary meta-data and MARC records

According to Library of Congress cataloging rules, if there are more than 3 authors, only the first author is recorded in the MARC

So, for example, if there are 4 or more authors named on the title page, the MARC record should only include the first author.

ebrary’s meta-data (versus MARC records) will list up to the first three 3 contributors named because this information comes from the
publisher, and publishers generally don’t follow LC cataloging rules.
