I use Sagebrush Spectrum (v5.3) and purchase many of my materials from 
Follett, using their marc records.  I began to notice problems in 
searching series. I finally traced it to the fact that it appears that 
Follett is putting the series title in the 490 tag rather than the 440 
tag, and Spectrum does not search the 490 tag.  Spectrum support told me 
that editing the file that tells the program which tags to search would 
have to be done on each workstation as well as the server.  My other 
option is to go in and edit each record in a particular series.  I've 
already done that on some series, but I have a lot of series.  Support 
also told me that there is no way to do a batch edit.  If anyone has any 
brilliant ideas, I'd love to hear them.  In the meantime, check to see 
if your series are showing up in a keyword search.  My aide was very 
baffled when she couldn't find the Spiderwick Chronicles.  Luckily I 
could remember that the author was DiTerlizzi.
