The puppet master : an inquiry into Sun Myung Moon and the Unification Church / J. Isamu Yamamoto. (OCLC #3186402)

The Library of Congress Control Number (LCCN) may appear on resources in different forms, but can be normalized to a canonical form.

This title’s LCCN appears on the title page verso as:


representing a year (1976) and a number assigned serially (this was the 55622nd title to receive an LCCN that year). This identifier is normalized by left-padding the serial number with zeros until it is six digits (055622) and removing the hyphen:


When LCCNs (in either format) are entered into an 010 in Connexion, their spacing is further normalized (spaces here displayed as _):

010 ___76055622_

Sane occultism, by Dion Fortune. (OCLC #466116)

MARC 010 holds the Library of Congress control number (LCCN), but bibliography numbers assigned by other national agencies are recorded in 015.

For example, this record has an LCCN:

010 __ ǂa 68134885

but also a number from the British National Bibliography:

015 __ ǂa B68-18038

though if you look at its record in that bibliography, the identifier is formatted differently:


From slavery to the cooperative commonwealth : labor and republican liberty in the nineteenth century / Alex Gourevitch, Brown University. (OCLC #885983229)

The CIP record for this title included the following:

245 10 Labor republicanism and the cooperative commonwealth : ǂb
something of slavery still remains / ǂc Alex Gourevitch,
Brown University.

which is very different from the title that appears on the piece as published; I only found it by searching for the LCCN. (The original title is still in LC’s catalog). The list of chapters in the contents note was identical, which helped convince me that this was the same book.

I updated the CIP record in OCLC to reflect the information on the item as published, as instructed in OCLC’s guidelines. As described in OCLC’s Quality Assurance document, I was not able to change the ELvl, so left this as 8, and also left 263 in the record.
