Rvolution*, etc. (for Revolution, Revolutionary)

You say you want a revolution. Well, you know, we all want to change the world. But, in the meantime, we may have to content ourselves with simply changing some of the access points for the world's great store of literature. We found a revolting, if coincidental, 76 instances of Rvolution* in OhioLINK (augmented to 78 over the past couple days), with Revoltion* (ten) and Revlution* (three) bringing up the rear. Go Fourth today and multiply the number of records in your catalog that are proud to be typo-free. (Photo of Pacific Palisades fireworks display, from Wikimedia Commons.)
