December 12, 2007 - Aluminmum

Aluminmum for aluminum in found on the E list of the Main list of OPAC typographical errors at . This means that this only had one hit on the OhioLINK database when it was discovered. It fits the classic pattern of a mistake at the end of a long word. We suspect that two things happened here. Somebody hit the "n" key at the right side and activated the "m" key as well. Secondly, a proofreader was thinking about something else. As always, we recommend that you check the specific context in the record if you find this in your catalog.
