I neglected to say that the series statement in such a situation
is also prescribed in ISBD(CR).
= = = = = = =
I want to explain more about the revision to LCRI 12.6B1.
A separate access point for a numbered main series is required
for two reasons: (1) not all indexing includes 245 in a series search;
(2) the principle in LCRI 21.30L about a separate access point for a
numbered main series (not an unnumbered series).
In the example, "Part A" is not the numbering for the main
series; it is the subseries designation. The numbering generally isn't
recorded in series statements in serial bibliographic records.

I am not sure what the value is in the proposed new section of the RI.
series title already appears, and can be indexed from, the title
This seems like extra work for little benefit. Also, why would this be
limited to numbered main series?
If this section is added to the RI, the example does not seem to
what is being discussed. Shouldn't it be something like the
