  Dear all,

as a non specialist in marc21 i am being asked how to fill field 240 

What i understood from what was explained to me today, is that when 240 
refers to a uniform title that doesn't have a clearly defined and unique 
author, a uniform-title authority will be used, with the header in 130. 
But if the title has one unique and unambiguous author, a person for 
instance, a personal name authority should be used, with the title in 100$t.

Seeing how authorities work in Koha this doesn't seem feasible, as the 
subfields will be copied from the specified header to the bibliographic 
record, and this would involve copying a 100$t to a 240$a while the 
100$a of the authority is copied to the 100$a of the bibliographic record.

Can anyone confirm this understanding of the marc21 standard and give me 
a better clue of how it is supposed to be implemented in Koha?
