Thanks for the clarification. We don’t do a lot of legal material here, so we didn’t understand the RDA instructions properly. We will update the existing SAR from a 110 $t to a 130, but we won’t add the date to the heading.

The name of a series is not the kind of "collective name" of a compilation of treaties referred to in RDA 184.108.40.206 or 220.127.116.11. It refers to a small group of related treaties that are referred to by historians or others by a collective name. This is the same as under AACR2 25.16. A series such as the Executive agreement series should not have the dates of the treaties added to the authorized access point. Please don't do this. Otherwise we'll have chaos with every treaty series.

Subject: Re: Series that is a compilation of treaties
Since no one else has volunteered, I’m happy to take you up on your offer. Would you prefer that we go ahead and change the AAP on the serial record when we submit our new SAR to NACO, or would you prefer to do all the updating of the record at one time?
Northwestern has the entire run of this series (at least as far as I can tell from our holdings record) but we'd need to recall volumes from our storage facility. If no one else is working on it, we could do it.
