 AACR2 21.2C2b category iii. The addition or subtraction of
a corporate body to the title is considered a minor change.

My interpretation is that the publisher is a corporate body.

Hello Everyone

Curious to know when we will see a record in OCLC for BLOOMBERG BUSINESSWEEK.  I see that there used to be one as I am using it in my local catalog - OCLC #609852353.  When I do a search for this in OCLC I see that it has been merged into the Business Week record - OCLC #1537921.  Why exactly does Bloomberg not have its own record anymore.  This is a fairly significant title change at least in my eyes.  Not to mention, it is now spelled as Businessweek versus Business Week.

We shelve journal titles alphabetically so we are shelving it under Bloomberg not Business Week and it appears on our journal list under this title as well.  How is everyone handling the title change?
