Two other points I've been wondering about which I haven't seen addressed:
Uniform titles for multipart monographs--Will LC be creating uniform title
authorities as needed for multipart monographs to support related work and
subject added entries? In the past, these titles were often established
with series authorities and not provided with distinct uniform title
Series-like phrases--In the past, series-like phrase authorities were used
to determine whether such a phrase would be entered in a series field or
some other field. Will this kind of decision still be made and documented
with series-like phrase authorities, or will all series-like phrases be
entered as 490 0s?
