Definition

A series title statement when the series statement and the controlled added entry form of the series title are the same. Field 440 is both a series statement and a series added entry. When a 440 field is present, a corresponding field 830 (Series Added Entry–Uniform Title) is not used since it would duplicate the 440 field. See " 4xx Introduction" for more information.
