Subject: RE: Cataloging a periodical within a periodical (Sallie Alger)

Sallie, I've done a few of those "titles within a title" this past year;
since we classify periodicals, both the cover-title periodical and the
title-within-the-title have the same call number.  Each is fully cataloged
on a separate record, just as though it were a stand-alone, and a 520 note
is added for each.  The cover-title 520 reads (more or less, the shelf
list is one buiding and I'm across campus in another, so this is all by
memory): Beginning ____________, includes the journal entitled _________,
vol. ---, no. ---.      If we don't own back all the way to the beginning
of this, and I don't know when it all started, the note is simply: Includes
the title ______________, (with dates/vols/etc. if I have them)

The t.-within-a-t. has a 520 note that says (again, loosely worded) Published
within the journal, (title), vol. --, no. --, (date) -  Each record has an
added entry for the other title.

Not sure this meets the strictest application of rules, but it works nicely
for us.

We also put a note in the check-in and order records, so we don't try to
claim under the wrong title or pay for a second subscription!!

Hope this is of some help.
