Subject: Help correcting an OCLC record

All right, I admit it, I wear so many hats I don't have time to catalog
that often and it has been quite a while since I have had a fairly major
correction to be made to an OCLC record.  Can anyone out there either a)
make this correction themselves, or b) remember the procedure and forms
that I need to fill out to get OCLC to do it?

The correction is to v.242 of: Dictionary of literary biography (OCLC
#46462772).  The title on OCLC is: Twentieth-century european culture
theorists : first series.  The problem is (and apparently over 400 other
libraries did not catch this either) that the word culture should be
**cultural**.  It says it on the spine, cover, and 2 title pages.  It
*doesn't* say culture anywhere.  I don't have high enough authorization to
make a title replacement, so I have to get someone else to do it.  Also,
please note that the 246 field is incorrect as well.

If you can and do replace this record, please let me know so that I don't
have to go through the intricacies of getting OCLC to do it (after I figure
out/remember what all that involves).

Thanks for the help,
