October 3, 2007 - Vermon

Vermon for Vermont is in the D, or Low Probability, section of Typographical Errors in Library Databases, meaning that it was found 2-7 times in OhioLINK at the time of its discovery. We give our standard disclaimer that a cataloger should never correct this without first checking the individual record for context. We got 76 hits for this in WorldCat, but it was a mixed bag, to say the least. In some cases, it was a legitimate first or last name. It could possibly be a typo for vermin or even sermon. Always check.
