As I've stated in the past, why would you want to put non-current titles
under serials control?  If you have title records in your OPAC, you can
just include a note there of what your holdings are for non-current

Putting a title under serials control is primarily a method of controlling
the orders and the incoming issues.

        I agree with you.  I was pointing out to Yves that one has
the option to attach a control record to a holdings record if need be and
that one can have a holdings record without linking it to a control
record.  Yes, it is totally unnecessary to attach a serials control record
to a holdings record for a dead title or non-current title.
