October 2, 2007 - Octber

Octber for October came on to the "Typographical errors in library databases" list in the moderate (8-15 hits in OhioLINK) category as the truncation "Octb." This morning, the truncated search got only 3 hits in OhioLINK - due to the fact that catalogers in those libraries pay attention to the work we do. Missing vowels are the number one culprits around here, although missing "o's" are far less likely than missing "i's." You will find 27 Octbers today in WorldCat, although some of them have a 'sic' to inform us that the mistake was on the title page of the work. This week's photography (and postings) provided by Terry Ballard.
