|Definition:||An additional or variant title, such as a title that was translated into English, a formal title that has been changed or corrected, an agency-supplied title, or an informal title. Variant titles include those that do not meet NARA standards for the formation of a title.|
|Purpose:||Allows users to retrieve archival materials by any known title.|
Enter any additional or variant title of the archival materials - including translated titles, changed or corrected titles, agency-supplied titles, and informal titles - by which the materials may be known by the public.
Use initial capital letters. Do not end a title with a period.
If you use Other Title, best practice is to include an explanation for the other title, including its source, in General Note.
At the Item Level, formal foreign language titles should be indicated in Title and translations placed in Other Title.
If a new title is created to conform to NARA standards, enter the new title in Title and indicate the superseded or agency-supplied title in Other Title, except in the case of classified titles.
