Busness (for Business)
Once again we turn to the most common form of typo in a library catalog - a missing vowel. The letter I is by far the most common offender. This error is found on the B, or high probability, section of the main page of typographical errors at http://faculty.quinnipiac.edu/libraries/tballard/typoscomplete.html. That means that the word was found at least 16 times in the OhioLINK catalog. Although there are many variants of business to be found in those pages, none has been selected to date as the typo of the day. As always, we suggest that you check the record for context before making a change. After all, somebody may have written a book about finding your inner busness.
