Determining Serial Title Changes

Major and Minor Changes

Since the 2002 AACR2 Rule revisions, libraries have used different criteria to determine whether a change in a serial's title require a new catalog record. The full guidelines are in the CONSER Cataloging Manual, Module 16. This is a summary of that information. See this link for the complete cataloging procedure for title changes.

Major changes:

 

Minor changes:

 

Receiving units should send these materials to Cataloging & Metadata, if they suspect a major change:  

Send us the first issue of the new title and the last issue of the old title.

or

Send us “surrogates:” photocopies of the issues.

 

What do the catalogers need to see?

What would we like to see if you have it:

The cataloger will notify the receiving unit and the binding unit by email when the work is completed, and send back any issues that were provided. (See this link for the complete cataloging procedure for title changes.)
