NLM LocatorPlus -- Authority Records -- Kinds of Authority Records

Question: What kinds of authority records will I find in LocatorPlus?

- 1. In the LocatorPlus retrieval, series appear twice, listed as the "series title" and "non-series title" headings. This is a Voyager peculiarity and NLM has no control over this double display.

- 2. It is current policy at NLM to only create authority records for name/title headings in very limited circumstances.
