This is a difference from AACR2. So, older records may be different.
The 8xx fields are traced—meaning that an entry will be made in our series index.
Sometimes treatment in GIL will differ; sometimes it is wrong also! Always check GIL and if you find discrepancies ask!
Tips: search for another record by the series title (starts at $t typically).

Series 101What is a series? a group of individual items each bearing itsown separate title with a collective title or"series" title applied to the group as a whole. Series statements in assist library users inlocating items grouped together (often byauthor, general subject heading, butsometimes more random) by the publisheran/or author. Series may be numbered or not(unnumbered). A title can belong to multiple series(represented by multiple 490 an 830 fields) oreven a sub-series. How is this different from a serial?
Series 101Definitions Monographic series: A group of separateitems related to one another by the fact thateach item bears in addition to its own titleproper, a collective title applying to thegroup as a whole. The individual items may ormay not be numbered.” (AACR2) Serial: “A continuing resource issued in asuccession of discrete parts, usually bearingnumbering, that has no predeterminedconclusion. Examples … and monographicseries.” (AACR2)
Series 101More definitions Multipart item: A monograph complete, orintended to be completed, in a finite numberof separate parts. The separate parts may ormay not be numbered.” (AACR2) – this is aset Integrating resource: “A bibliographicresource that is added to or changed bymeans of updates that do not remain discreteand are integrated into the whole …Examples … updating loose-leafs andupdating Web sites.” (AACR2)
Series 101And more definitions Subseries: “A series within a series (i.e., aseries that always appears in conjunctionwith another, usually morecomprehensive, series of which it forms asection).” (AACR2) Series-like phrase: “A character string(words, letters, combination of letters andnumerals) not considered to be a series.”
Series 101What is a series? Analytics are monographs (books) thatare part of a larger title, either a set or aserial. These carry their “parent” (the larger title)in the series field. Analytics also take thecall numbering of the parent and theirnumbering from their position in the series.

Series 101 In a MARC record, the series is represented mostcommonly: 490 1 (as it appears on the piece) + 830 (authorized“official” name of a series) – 830 does not needediting unless it does not validate 440 – action needed: Create a 830 field from the440. Be aware of leading articles as they will needto be omitted in the 830. If you have any questions,always, always check for a SAR. The 440 is an olderway of representing the 490 and 830 as ONE field.So, a 440 says, what is on the piece is the SAME asthe official series title. We don’t do this anymore. 490 0 – action needed: search for a Series AuthorityRecord (SAR) to create a 830 490/810 – try to find a SAR in GIL or OCLC.

Series 101Searching SARS You can also search for authorities inOCLC, too. GIL only displays series recordsthat are imported into our authority file. For copy cataloging, you have to searchthe OCLC authority file. Saving a record, will start the validationprocess. This is another way to retrieveSARs> NOT for copy cataloging (orrecataloging!)
