  You are really asking about the content of your holdings statements,
and this is also covered by standards.  ISO 10324, the international
one, is a "summary level" standard for holdings, but it would give many
indications for how to express your information.  An American standard
that is equivalent to this and coordinated with it--but also contains a
detailed level suitable for check-in data--is NISO standard Z39.71,
which is freely available electronically and also may be purchased in
paper.  It is at the NISO website,
