When a serial entered under a name heading according to earlier rules must be update because the responsible entity has changed (while the title proper has remained the same), if AACR2 rules call for title main entry (or uniform title main entry with place of publication as qualifier), update the record to AACR2.

If other pre-AACR2 successive records exist for earlier changes in the main entry heading, and the title proper has stayed the same, then these records should be consolidated with the revised AACR2 record. (See C8.2.).
