Sandy, I'm not familiar with Follett per se, but I believe your
disappearing titles can be explained in terms of the MARC record.  There
can be several tags for differing types of titles in the same record.  The
title proper appears in tag 245, the uniform title in tag 130 or 240,
analytical titles in 740, cover title in 246, etc.  Depending on the OPAC
software, all or some of these titles would appear in addition to the
title proper as it appears in 245.  I believe you were seeing variant
titles in the same record, which explains the "duplicate" barcodes and the
joint disappearance of both titles after the removal of "one" record!  Aha!

Hope this helps.
