Music Library Association Best Practices for Music Cataloging Using RDA and MARC 21 for Chapter 25: Related Works
MLA BP for 25.0
MLA recommendation: Generally follow for musical works. Optionally, give access points for three or more related works (in the categories given) if deemed useful for identification or access.
MLA BP for 25.1
MLA recommendation: Follow . In bibliographic records for compilations, give access points for all works/expressions contained in the resource if feasible.1 If giving access points for some but not all works/expressions, give preference to those that are prominently named and/or form a substantial part of the resource.
For other types of related works, generally give access points in the following common situations, if feasible and readily ascertainable:
Literary or artistic work that formed the inspiration for a musical work (see 25.0)
Musical work upon which a derivative musical work is based (e.g., a work used as the basis for a set of variations)
Alternatively, give structured or unstructured descriptions instead of, or in addition to the access point(s).2
