Cselected (for Selected)

This typo is in the low probability list in the page Typographical Errors in Library Databases at . It was selected as an illustration of subfield tagging gone awry. The upshot of this is that there aren't very many CSelected cases, but there is a potential for a number of other typos derived from an inappropriate subfield. Users on Millennium systems could probably run a review file with the presence of {space}/c in the 245 fields to systematically snag them. Otherwise, it would be a needle in a haystack.
