Referneces (for References)

Now that RDA seems to be imminently upon us, we're going to have to spell more things out, but I'm told that everyone will just make macros to type common phrases. In AACR2, one of those phrases is "Includes bibliographical references and index." You would do well to use a macro instead of typing that out. One possible misspelling is referneces, which is not yet on the Ballard list, but appears once in the OhioLINK catalog and 195 times in WorldCat. Before we switch to a new code and have new phrases to learn, you might want to make sure this error is cleaned up in your database.
