November 2, 2007 - "Betweeen" for Between
Mark Twain said, "The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.” You hate to misquote a saying, but to misspell a word in a quote takes all the punch out of it. The same is true of online catalogs. Several typos of "Betweeen" are most likely waiting for correction in your catalog--particularly in title fields, summary and contents notes, and 260 field dates when the cataloger has given a range of possible dates, such as "between 1856 and 1862."
