If a number or date that is to be recorded as part of the designation is known to be incorrect, record the incorrect form and explain the error in a note (field 515) or use "[i.e. ...]" with the designation when the correction is simple. Examples





Figure 8.21b. Caption

Figure 8.21a. Chief source


Although 1945 is given on the cover (Figure 8.21a.), it appears from other sources that the correct date of coverage is 1944. Since the correction is a simple one, the date on the chief source is recorded followed by the correct date in brackets.

362 0# $a 1945 [i.e., 1944]-
