Use of 505 for contents note in serials records Ila M. Grice 13 Feb 1996 22:40 UTC

We have MANY guidebooks from MANY geological societies cataloged as serials.
Most of the the guidebooks also have distinctive titles.  In my opinion, better
access would have been provided if they had been cataloged as monographs or
monographic series.  There are too many to recatalog.  I am considering adding
505 20 to the serials records as new volumes are received.  I would like your
reactions and comments to this.  Thanks.
