Since I rarely handle serials, I would like a confirmation on my 
understanding of the provisions of CSM.

I have on my desk D&AD.  Previous title, D&AD annual, which LC classes at 
NC998.6.G7 D47.  This classification is for British commercial art. 
However, D&AD has the subtitle "The best advertising and design in the 
world," and the contents show that this title no longer covers only 

CSM says "If the serial is linked to a previously cataloged serial and the 
numbering continues, assign the same call number that was assigned to the 
previously cataloged serial provided that the class number is acceptable." 
 Am I correct in thinking that in this case the class number would no 
longer be considered acceptable, since the scope had changed?
