When doing the single record approach for cataloging ejournals, the
electronic ISSN should go in the $x of the 776 field.  However, the 776
field does not just have to be a note field; with most online catalogs,
libraries can index this field however they like and have it display to
the public with whatever display labels they feel would best convey the
meaning of this field as it is used in their catalogs.

At UCSD we use the Innovative software for our online catalog and we index
the $x of the 776 in our standard number index.  We just added it to this
index last year, Innovative is pretty flexible about what they will allow
you to index.

         We use the single record approach here at the University of
California, so I use a second 022 field and put (online) following the
ISSN number.  This is somewhat in keeping with a set record that has
separate ISBN numbers for each volume in the set and the record has
multiple 020 fields with the volume number in parentheses following the
specific ISBN.  Stefanie
