Problem searching Journal titles in CONSULS

We have encountered a problem searching “Connecticut History” in CONSULS. The Cataloging department has discovered that some journals have multiple levels of “brief” records.

When you search Connecticut History, you will end up with the electronic journal and the actual printed copy. In CONSULS, it will say on Brief Record 1 that the State Library is the only one to own this title. BUT if you click on the the title link again, it will bring up the other copies held by the rest of us.

They are working on how to fix this. I hope a note will be placed next to these records saying that “CCSU, ECSU, etc own this item”. That note would give a clue that you should click again. But, I don’t know when that will happen.

My advice, alas is to keep clicking down.
