In title references (subfield $a, subfield $n, and subfield $p) and title portions of name/title references, omit an initial article unless it is to be filed on.

Add a qualifier to a reference if it conflicts with the heading of another publication according to the guidelines in LCRI 25.5B.

Add the qualifier "(Series)" to a reference if it is identical to a personal or corporate (including geographic) name (cf. LCRI 25.5B).

Do not break a conflict between see references.

When using an existing series authority record, add any appropriate references not already in the record. Do not delete references made according to earlier policies.
