Adjusting Copy
Once an authority record for the series is found in our catalog, copy should be adjusted based on a comparison of the book in hand and the information found in the local authority record. The following chart summarizes the possibilities:
Series Tagging
Tag Indicator Notes
440 _* (0-9 for non-filing character) Series traced; series statement title identical in form to authorized heading.
490 0_ Series not traced; series statement title may or may not be identical to authorized heading.
In particular, the authorized heading may have a qualifier in parentheses after the title which is not used in the catalog record.
490 1_ Series traced; series statement title varies from authorized heading.
In such cases, there will always be a reciprocal 8xx (series added entry), corresponding to the authorized heading.
