Dear NACO SAR colleagues,

 

Policy and Standards Division has received an email stating concerns about the increasing presence of subtitles in SAR headings. 

 

The LCRI at 21.30L says “Although a series statement may include a parallel title (1.6C), other title information (1.6D), a statement of responsibility (1.6E), or an ISSN (1.6F), the heading for a series consists only of one of the following:  a title proper, a uniform title heading, a name heading/title proper, or a name heading/uniform title.”

 

If the title proper of the series appears on the source with a colon between some of the words, please change the punctuation if you determine that the words after the colon really are part of the title proper.

 

Thanks, Judy
