Jain is absolutely right.  I have frequently referred problems back to the
originating libraries, and I certainly want to know when someone finds a
problem with any of our BIBCO or NACO records.  Also, if I change a NACO
heading for some reason (a valid reason, of course), I attempt to inform
the library that originally created the record.  I have also had other
libraries ask my permission to change NACO headings created by us. I don't
particularly think that it's necessary to ask permission to change a
record for a valid reason, but I don't mind when someone does ask.  I'd
just like to be informed of the change.
