Subject:  Quebec dans le monde (Association) publications: need help
interpreting DLC & NLC name authority decisions and whether or not related
bib record(s) constitutes title change

Hello -

I'm hoping someone can help interpret these two name authority records
so that I can use the correct name heading for our local bib and authority
records.  We have several publications produced by the organization:
Québec dans le monde.  When I search this name in the OCLC name authority
file, I retrieve this record ....

        010    no 89006976
        040    DLC-S ßc DLC-S ßd DLC-S
        005    19901228174623.1
        110 2  Alliance Champlain
        410 2  Québec dans le monde (Association)
        670    Le Québec à votre portée, 1988-1989: $b t.p. (Alliance
        Champlain; Sainte-Foy (Québec))
        670    NLC 3/22/89 $b (Alliance Champlain, établie 1981; Québec dans le
        monde (Association), variant name)

We've been using the heading "Alliance Champlain" on our records for
several years -- even though it struck me today that nowhere on the piece
is this name in evidence.  The name that is prominent -- and has been
prominent on the volumes that we have since the mid 1990's is the x-ref
(410):  Québec dans le monde.

So .... I decided to start looking for an authority record in Canadiana --
the NLC-BNC CD product that we have ... and I found the following
authority record for Alliance Champlain.  Note: the "see also" reference
in the 510, preceded by control subfield w. and the 665 that indicates the
name change in Nov. 1988.

        670:  $a'Association québécoise de diffusion internationale du
        670:  $aConvergences (Sainte-Foy, Québec).

I'm confused because I was unable to find a name authority record for the
later heading, Québec dans le monde (Association) -- not in OCLC and not
in the Canadiana discs (the last update we have is Jan. 2002).  However,
if I look in web Amicus and /or in OCLC, I can find several bib records
that use the later/current heading.  Should the OCLC name authority files
reflect this change?

The problem multiplies when I look at bib records in OCLC and Amicus.  I
was preparing to do a title change in OCLC for this record (because the
words "Répertoire descriptif" (see 245) are no longer anywhere on the
latest volume) ....  The t.p. title for the 2002-2003 vol.  eliminates
"Répertoire descriptif" from the t.p. ... so the "new" title has become
the $p data.

Before creating a new record in OCLC, I noticed the same record in Amicus
had been edited to avoid the title change (note: OCLC and CONSER # in
Amicus record are the same as preceding record) Note the OCLC record
(above) has the old form of the heading and the Amicus record (below) has
the new/current heading in the 710 field.  Also, the Amicus record changes
the 245 field by moving $p data (from above) in $a (below) which
eliminates the question of the later issue of this serial being a title

Is there someone either at the NLC or LC who can explain what is
going on and advise a course of action?  Someone who can resolve the
discrepancies between the OCLC and Amicus records?

Thanks  / Merci d'avance.       -Birdie
