Regarding the revised guidelines on 5XXs:

When is a publication in the LC database?  I note that the earlier name in the [no publs. in LC database] example on p. 2, Stover Manufacturing Company, is not in the LC database as an AACR2 heading, but "Stover Manufacturing Co., Freeport, Ill." is, as a [from old catalog] heading. In practice, should the latter be regarded as in the LC database, or not? If not, are there any exeptions for obsolete headings in RLIN or OCLC?
