Sources of NLC verification: NLC headings in RLIN
If Canadian CIP is not available, look for the name on an AACR2 National Library of Canada record in RLIN.
You can conduct your heading search in the usual way. For NLC monographs, limit to records with an ONCG identifier by using the "als li oncg" add-on search.
NLC serial records can be identified by the code "nlc" in the 042 authentication field.

If you find an NLC AACR2 heading for the name you are establishing, cite it in a separate 670 field as follows. Use it as your heading, whether or not the form of name matches the usage on the work you are cataloging.
If you don't find NLC in RLIN, write "NLC in RLIN search done" on the printout of your authority record.
