July 20, 2007 - Ccharles

Ccharles for Charles is found on the D list of Typographical Errors in Library Databases, meaning that it is in the Low Probability section. If you search for this in your catalog and don't find it, don't start the celebration quite yet. The nature of this typo is normally a tagging error in the 245 field. What should be |c is missing the pipe symbol, so the letter displays to the world. So even though Ccharles is a non-starter in your catalog, you still need to worry about Cjohn, Cwilliam, Cterry and so on, and make a C change when necessary.
