I would use the second 780.  There are times the only place the previous title
can be found is in the piece in hand, so I'd use the information there.  It can
always be corrected later, but that's all you know at point of cataloging.

It's not really surprising that you can find no record in OCLC.  It doesn't
sound like a title too many libraries would have and of those that do, some
might not consider it important enough to catalog, especially if it's a current
awareness tool.
