Order of notes steven oberg 14 Jul 1992 22:59 UTC

In reply to Kay Teel's question regarding the order of notes in a serial
record, there is indeed a difference between AACR2 and the CONSER manual.  At
our library we have chosen to follow CONSER practice so we differ from the
directions given in AACR2.

Kay also asked about where to put a 533 note.  Although the CONSER manual
does not state where this field should be input in the beginning of the Notes
section or in the section on the 533 field, it does give instruction about
where to place the note in Appendix M, p. 4.  It states that the 533 field
should be input following other 5XX notes.
