 +====== Closing monographic series records ======
  
 +
 +Most titles end publication at one time or another, with or without completing the series. The Acquisitions team will pass on any such information to the A/V cataloger, but sometimes there is no formal notification from the publisher so it is necessary to check each latest volume itself via the book jacket (if present) and/or the forewords or introduction in the volume.
 +
 +  * Change the 260 field by taking out the <> surrounding the last date of publication i.e.,  1990-<​2015>​ to 1990-2015.
 +   
 + 
 +  * Change the 300 field from v. <1-4> to 4 volumes. ​   ​
 +
 +
 +*****However if there is a gap in the number of volumes that we have (v. <1-3, 5>  change it to the known total of published volumes (5 volumes). ​ People will see in OPAC which volumes we do have.  ​
 +
 +
 +  * If there is a missing volume, make a 500 note to this effect (i.e., "​Library lacks vol. 14").
 +
 +  * If the series ceased publication without being complete, make a 500 note to this effect ("No more published"​). ​ If, however, there is only one volume the 500 field should read: "Vol. I. No more published." ​ or "Book one, Lacson as a newspaperman. No more published." ​
 +
 +  * If present, change the 505 field indicator from 1 to 0. Change the 505 1 field to 505 0.
