August 2, 2007 - Europen for European

"Europen" is a typo that has a moderate probability of being present in your catalog, particularly in subject heading, series, and title fields as well as summary and contents notes, and the publisher field. Many libraries offer a "keyword" search as the first option for patrons to search online catalogs. By not correcting "Europen," the patrons' initial keyword search may eliminate a viable choice of available bibliographic records--in other words, your patrons won't find what they are looking for.
