I am also curious about this, especially since I'm teaching series to
my cataloging students next Friday!
I am teaching the proposed abandonment of 440 and using 490 1 and 8XX
only, although it's been difficult to find anything definitive about
how this will work. I am explaining how 440 and 490 used to work, and
providing information about the subfields used in the 440, since there
will be records that still contain the 440.
