Fill Out The Freggin' Form

Every now and then, someone writes me a desperate email about not being able to catalogue summat. Every time I get one of those letters, I cringe at my being the last line of defence. Admittedly, I smile a little bit thinking about having that much nerd trust.

So anyway, here and there when I help folks out, I stumble on crappy LoC records. It's bound to happen. I've heard war stories from actual cataloguers about some real Duesies. I went to a happy Library School, and will happily pass on what they taught me.

There's a form to fill out in these unfortunate cases.

Also, LoC people don't always bite. This wee mistake was fixed within a few hours early on a Friday morning. The pride of having correct publication data shall now burn in my secret cataloguing heart.
