Quoting from the Cataloger's Desktop version of DCM Z1: Existing SARs and non-LC analytic records:
"SARs created before Sept. 1, 1989, with an LC decision to analyze in full but not to trace should not be modified to add PCC tracing policy. The LC decision not to trace will be followed by BIBCO participants so that analytic records in a shared database will be consistent in the lack of traced series. Analytic records (either full or core) may be coded as BIBCO records even though the series are not traced."
In light of LC's post June 1, 2006 series policies, should the above paragraph be revised?
We could now require participants to trace these formerly untraced series in Full level PCC records, and to revise the SARs in question.
This change in policy would raise the associated question of what to do (if anything) about alll the PCC records where the series is coded on bibliographic records as "490 0", in accordance with the existing policy for SARs created prior to 1989.
One such series authority record is n 42003795: Beck'sche Kurz-Kommentare, a perfectly good numbered series.
