We had made the determination that because the original title was still
appearing on the chief source, that it was not considered a title change
(esp. as publisher had not applied for a new ISSN and the acronym title
had been appearing in various places on previous issues).  --Steve

It is my understanding that as long as the title remains along with the
initials, adding the initials does not constitute a change of title.  At
the Midwinter meeting of the Committee to Study Serials Cataloging, it
became evident from the proposal being studied that the movement today
is away from calling much of anything a title change.
