2. Errors in Title Proper Examples

Source: LC Training Module 1, Slide 70, Sept. 2012. Text from Trainers' Notes

The first example for a monograph shows how the title is recorded in an AACR2 record; a 246 field can be given, as needed, to provide the correct form for searching (omitted in the example on the slide).

245 1 0 ‡a Teusday’s [i.e. Tuesday’s] tasks

The second example shows how the title is recorded in an RDA record; the incorrect word in the 245 field with no “[sic]” or “[i.e.]”; a variant title field gives the corrected form.

245 1 0 ‡a Teusday’s tasks
246 1   246 ‡i Corrected title: ‡a Tuesday’s tasks

The third example, for a serial, shows that the misspelled word has been corrected in the title proper.  It is also important to give a variant title for serials for the form found on the resource, for example, for the users who don’t read the language of the title and so don’t realize that the title includes an error.

245 1 0 ‡a Zoology studies
246 1   ‡i Misspelled title on number 1: ‡a Zooology studies
