When you are cataloging a collection of works on one record, the individual titles of those works should be recorded as analytical entries:

740 02 ǂa Babo 73.
740 02 ǂa Chafed elbows.
740 02 ǂa No more excuses.
740 02 ǂa Putney Swope.
740 02 ǂa Two tons of turquoise to Taos tonight.

No relationship designator is needed; it is already encoded in the MARC: in 740, second indicator ‘2’ designates the field as an analytical entry. The first indicator is the number of non-filing characters in the title; however, current practice is to always use first indicator ‘0’, and just enter the title without articles or other non-filing characters.


The Health consequences of smoking : a Public Health Service review. (OCLC #2241027)

This serial volume came to my attention because our government documents collection copy (with SuDoc stem HE 20.7016:) had been shelved with the HEs in our main LC-classed collection. Oops!

Our government documents librarian requested that the volume’s individual title “Chronic obstructive lung disease” be added to the serial record along with the several other individual titles already in there (all in 246s for some reason?) because a search for this title in our opac only brought up records for a 10-page summary of it, not for the full report (546 pages).

Though it is unusual to add analytical titles for serial records, we made an exception to provide more access, and put them in in 740s.
