|Cataloging Practices Manual||[CPM-308]|
A series added entry is made on the record for each work in a series if it is judged to be a useful access point. When an added entry for a series is made, we say that the series is "traced." The user can find the record for a work that is part of a traced series by performing a jt search in CLIO for the series title. If a series is "untraced" there is no added entry made for the title of the series on the records of works in that series. Those records cannot be found by performing a jt search for the series title in CLIO and they cannot be found by performing a title search in the OPAC, either.
Series statements (the title of the series as found on the item) are always included in the MARC record. Series added entries (added entries under the authorized form of the series title, which may differ from the form found on the item) are included in the MARC record if a series is traced. Here are the possible combinations of series statements/added entries that could be encountered in MARC records. Please note that more than one type of series coding may occur in a single record if there are more than one series on the item.
Note: these procedures only apply to cataloging with copy. For series principles in original cataloging, see CPM300 For series authority procedures in preliminary records, see CPM327
