The series authority record contains the form of series to be used (1XX) and cross references (4XX), the treatment (644-646; with reference to the institution to which the treatment applies in $5), notes relating to the series (667-668), the form of numbering (642), and citations to the works in which the series has been found (670). The series authority record is essential because it assures that all libraries will at least use the same form of entry for the series, if not the same "treatment."
