May 17, 2007 - Editoral

Editoral for Editorial is on the high probability list as a typo in most catalogs. A check of OhioLINK resulted in 81 hits for "Editoral" with the majority of hits being in two categories. One category was for the English language "Editoral" board, or staff, or directors, or consultants, or assistance, usually in the subfield "c" portion of the title field. The other category fell into non-English language typos, usually Spanish or Italian languages, with "Editoral" as a typo in a publisher's name. Editorial comment: The Typographical Errors in Library Databases list deals with identifying and correcting English language typos.
