On the day that Al Gore accepted the Nobel Peace Prize for his work on the environment, this one jumped out at us. It is on the B, or high probability, list at Typographical Errors in Library Databases at http://faculty.quinnipiac.edu/libraries/tballard/typoscomplete.html, meaning that it was found at least 16 times in the OhioLINK catalog at the time of its discovery. When you supersize this by adding the truncation *, the total jumps to 50. As always, we like to point out that any corrections made on the basis of these postings need to be checked individually in your catalog. Sometimes a typo is deliberate, or present in the original work.
