I am doing some cleanup of some serial records and came across a
denominational title that appears to have some problems in our local
database and on OCLC.  I need some guidance from some of you regarding
how many records there should be.

The OCLC records in the databases are #2250634 and #48977019 (Leadership
edition).  Both records presently run from the inception of the
periodical in 1970.  However, upon examining our issues closely, we have
Accent  (Leader edition) running from volumes 1-22 (1970-1992) and
Accent (Leadership edition) beginning at volume 23 #1 (Oct 1992) and
running to the present.  Obviously, the record for the leadership
edition is incorrect as to the start date.  My questions are:  Does a
record need to be added for an Accent (Leader edition) running from
1970-1992?  Does there even need to be separate records for these
"editions"?  Will a note in the "500" Marc field suffice to cover the
