Re: Volume numbering changes Skwor, Jeanette 27 Jun 2002 17:46 UTC

***We had a title a few years ago - I'm not remembering what it was,
specifically - but they changed their voluming to match their anniversary
year.  They had had like, vol. 48, then 49 but now their 50th anniversary
was going to be coming up, so they started over again, repeating voluming so
that they would be on vol. 50 during their 50th year.

***What we did was indicate vol. 49a and 49b, etc.

***Isn't creativity fun?

I'm hoping others have come across a similiar situation and can provide
guidance to me.

We subscribe to the title Track & field coaches review. The title used
the last two numbers in the year as the volume designation, which we
also used. However, in 1999, the title changed the volume to 72 which is
what the volume would be had the title used a numerical volume
designation from the beginning.

Our problem is that eventually the current numerical voluming will catch
up to the old chronological voluming and we'll have a difficult time
shelving these things. Does anyone else have this problem and what are
you thinking of doing to circumvent the problem?
