Tête-bêche (Head to Tail) Print Publications

These publications most often include two titles that are bound upside down in relation to each other. Most of the time the volume does not have a collective title. Most often one bibliographic record is used for both titles, with a 740 analytical added entry for the second title. In addition, a 501 “with” note might be needed in the bibliographic record.

However, if the cataloger chooses to create two bibliographic records for a tête-bêche print publication, the bound-with procedure described here would apply to that situation, as only one item record would be associated with both titles.
