Based on the clarification of your question and the situation, I would say this is a question for system user groups. Many systems do look at the full string and find it difficult to suppress some of the data in the bib heading, so cannot recognize a match with the authority record. Before you strip out the 830$x ask your system vendor if they have an upgrade in the wings that will be able to handle this data. If the upgrade is too far off it is probably worth stripping the subfield.

YES!  Several months ago the Backstage list had a discussion about this very thing, and the consensus was don’t include it.  Prior to that discussion, BSLW had been adding the $x and it did cause problems.  As a result of the discussion BSLW stopped putting $x in the 830.

Well, since the $x isn’t part of the authorized form of the series, it appears that it should not be entered in 830.  I’m wondering whether to recommend stripping it when our records are processed by Backstage post-cataloging. Do other libraries find it interferes with authority validation?

The documentation that I could find does not make an explicit and absolute statement on this, but from the sources cited below, I would infer that the 830 $x is optional for all types of cataloging.   And I certainly hope so, as I think that if the ISSN is needed for retrieval of individual series statements, it could be supplied from the authority record rather than from having the cataloger copy and paste multiple times.

 

The BIBCO Standard Record Metadata Application Profile says about the series added entry “If cataloger judgment or local cataloging policy is to trace a series, include in this field the authorized form of the series as established in the LC Name Authority File.”

 

Cf: http://www.loc.gov/catdir/pcc/bibco/BSR_ImplementationDoc.pdf

 

OCLC Biblographic Formats and Standards say that the 830 $x is optional at both full and minimal levels.

For pcc records, is 830 $x mandatory if applicable if the series added entry is made? Is there some documentation I can refer to regarding the policy?
