Series Cataloguing

Sitka libraries use the 490 tag for a series title statement, which is the current Library of Congress standard. The 490 should include subfield $a and subfield $v. If an added entry is required, you must use the 800 or 830 tag. The 440 tag has been obsolete since 2008, and while records containing 440 tags are still in the catalogue, new series statements must follow the current standard.
