We are not trained for editing series authorities, and we are moving to vendor processing with LC SARs, so reviewing our local notes.
I am hoping that one of the PCC sites who edit series records could look into this problem:
If you search “CBC Massey lectures seriesþ” in VIAF, you will see the Library and Archives Canada record for the series, which has
641 ý‡a Do not use year of lecture as numbering. Do not number series by ordinal sequence (1st, 2nd, 3rd series, etc.)þ.
In the NAF, “CBC Massey lectures series” appears as 430s on 2 different SARs.
The earlier 010 n 86800880 has numbering as 23rd ser., however this data was supplied in the bib record, and almost all series entries lack numbering in OCLC; one or 2 have supplied year of lecture.
Would anyone be able to investigate, then update the SARs in the NAF? I could then fix the OCLC records accordingly; these sometimes have 2 series statements due to the 430s being identical on 2 different SARs.
