Subject: [External] Dissertation from two institutions simultaneously


Has anyone cataloged a dissertation that is submitted simultaneously to two institutions that have a cooperative arrangement?  There are two separate title pages for the two institutions.  I'm trying to determine the correct description.  The title is identical for both title pages, although of course the institution-related info. is different.  The 502 note would need to include both institutions.  Anyone have an example in OCLC?
