Re: [ACAT] What's going on with Yearbook of morphology? Steven C Shadle 09 Oct 2008 17:20 UTC

I have no information about this title (I'll check to see whether we hold and
what the ISSN assignments are), but I would like to point out that if it really
is the case that the title has changed from 'Yearbook of morphology' to
'Morphology' that this is considered a minor change (dropping of a resource
type word and preposition) and that a successive record should not be created.
To answer Jack's later question about 776/780, if it's the case that the title
has ceased in print and continued online (whether or not there is an associated
title change), then there should be a 780/785 between the print and online
version records.  If there are any issues in common between print and online
version, then 776 should be used to link print/online version records.  So in
cases where the print ceases but the online version has digitized earlier print
issues, there can be both 776 and 780/785 linking between the print/online
version records.  This is okay and is current conser practice per CONSER
Cataloging Manual Module 31.16.1 -- Multiple linking relationships.
