According to AACR2 24.1C, any change in the name requires that a new heading be established. Since the same name is likely to be used on different publications and, for serials, on each consecutive issue, it is quite possible that there may be changes in the way the name is presented on different pieces (see also CCM 18.4.). In order to avoid setting up new headings when there is little evidence that there really is a change in name, LCRI 24.2 defines categories of minor changes that do not constitute a name change. The categories are similar to those defined for non-title changes: changes in the representation of a word, changes to prepositions, or changes in punctuation. Note that they are applied "in the absence of explicit evidence that a true name change has taken place." Example:
