Pulbic* (for Public, Publication, etc.)

Pulbic* is my typographical nemesis–I can never seem to key the word public correctly. So I’m not surprised that this error appears in the high-probability section of the Ballard list. There are currently 18 English-language entries for it in the OhioLink database, and nearly 100 in WorldCat when searched as a keyword.

Let’s all do our best to wipe out this very pulbic public enemy in our own catalogs!
