“Acess” Denied!

“Acess” for Access

Typos in bibliographic records skew search retrievals—an “Access Denied” message may as well display because the user is denied access to all records associated with the correct search terms. “Acess” for “Access” can be found in the title field, subtitle, contents note, and subject headings, which are key fields for keyword searching. If you really want to clean up the nitty-gritty for “Acess,” look at MARC Tag 538 - the System Details Note - where you will find a major share of “mode of acess” and “current acess” and a few “internet acess” notes.
