The downside of fixing library jargon

As I was checking some broken links, I came across a sentence that puzzled me. Guess what seemed like a good idea at the time but produced such gems as:
  • "National Aeronautics and SLibrary Cataloguee Administration"
  • "the imLibrary Cataloguet of its research on economic and environmental issues"
I think this problem is limited to just a couple of our webpages... but how to be sure? To the best of my knowledge, Google doesn't have any "search this site for places where the string library catalogue does not belong" function; that requires some serious regular expressions.
