Hallie -- The ISSN in the OCLC record is the "correct" ISSN.  Anytime you
see an 042 nsdp in an OCLC record, it means that the National Serials Data
Program has either assigned or verfied the ISSN for the title appearing in
the 222 (key title) field.  Apparently the publisher has misprinted the
ISSN...misprinted ISSN can be transcribed in 022 $y.  Hope this helps.

I think that the ISSN on the Sunday paper has been 'typed' incorrectly and
that it really is 0744-9526 like the OCLC record (NSD) indicates for this
seven-day-a-week paper.  You might want to check with Regina Reynolds
about it.

Secondarily, I've noticed the 'bad search' of ISSN before, too, and I
think it is an OCLC indexing problem.  No suggestions on where to go with
that question, though!

I would appreciate any help with this cataloging problem of the
Clarion-Ledger (Jackson, Miss. : 1941).

We just started subscribing to the Sunday edition of this newspaper.

The ISSN in the newspaper is 0744-9626.

The ISSN in the OCLC record (# 8674244) is 0744-9526.

If we want to include both ISSN's in our local catalog, can one of them go
in subfield "y?"

If yes, which one?

Also, if you search OCLC (fin sn) for 0744-9626, you retrieve OCLC record #
8682421, which is a completely different title, with another ISSN

Thanks very much and Happy Mardi Gras,
