Re: Atlantic (monthly?) Jason Ford 05 Apr 2007 00:11 UTC

I asked this same question about 7 months ago. The input I received was
along the lines of:

The periodical Atlantic Monthly is still edited and distributed by the
Editorial Offices of "The Atlantic Monthly".
Though the title page shows the title to be "Atlantic Monthly", adding or
removing the frequency of a periodical to or from its title does not
necessarily constitute an official title change.

I'm not sure if this advice is correct, however. I suppose it's contingent
upon the meaning of "necessarily", as a certain ex-president might comment.
I have seen title changes happen for less, after all.

Hope this helps.

Subject: [SERIALST] Atlantic (monthly?)

This may be a very basic and stupid question to the serial catalogers, but
why is The Atlantic still cataloged as The Atlantic monthly ("Atlantic
monthly (Boston, Mass. : 1993)")?  It has caused confusion and problems for
serials students where I work.  From what little I know of AACR2 and CONSER
practices with major/minor changes, this should be a title change dating
back to 2003/2004.

  Any enlightenment would be appreciated.
