Engineering management of design and construction of facilities of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration; report of the Subcommittee on NASA Over sight of the Committee on Science and Astronautics, U.S. House of Representatives. [by Philip P. Dickinson]. (OCLC #57440)

This title came to me as a cataloging problem because though there was a good record in OCLC, the publication date in the record (1959) did not match the date on the piece (1958).

The cover and internal content use the date August 11, 1969, so that seems like the correct date. Also, the monthly catalog record for the title lists the date as 1969 and includes the note:

[Imprint date incorrectly given on title page as 1968.]

so I used the existing record, and added that note to our local copy so it doesn’t cause us confusion later.


The warlock’s book : secrets of black magic from the ancient grimoires / by Peter Haining ; illustrated by George Underwood based on original woodcuts. (OCLC #6671654)

In OCLC, variation in printing, manufacture or distribution date alone does not justify creating a new record. Though this item was printed in 1973, the manifestation (edition) was published in 1971, so we can use a 1971 record. A printing date can additionally be recorded in the record:

260 __ ǂa Secaucus, N.J. : ǂb Citadel Press, ǂc [1971], 1973 printing.

but only the publication information goes in the fixed fields:

DtSt: s   Date1: 1971  Date2: ____
