NOTE 1: In general, do not make added entries for editors of individual volumes noted in the 505 field.

Adjust the 505 field to include the individual volume titles (and authors/editors if necessary) of the volumes being added. Follow the established pattern when adding to a 505 note.

Example 1:

505 1 v. 1. The Americas -- v. 2. Eurasia

Change contents note to:
505 1 v. 1.The Americas --v. 2.Eurasia --v. 3.Oceania (4 v.)
[v. 3 is in 4 volumes]

(Added entry will be necessary for R. Jones)
