Titles of Serials : LC-PCC Best Practices Guidelines

Myth:
“Typos and errors in the titles of serials should be recorded as they appear, and NOT be corrected -- just like monographs.”

Reality:

Incorrect.  In order to record a consistent title for all issues of a serial and all issues of an integrating resource, such errors SHOULD be corrected (per the exception at 2.3.1.4), and a variant title (246) can be recorded for the title as on the resource (i.e., with the error).
