Good Morning, Lucy & all,

We would use the 2 in this case -- since the publication has changed title
and no longer exists under that name.  (In hair-splitting mode, we'd use
the 2 if the reporting library holds issues all the way to the title
change.  If the library's holding ended prior to the title change, we'd use
a 5 because the holding is not "complete" in that it stops short of the end.)

Make sense?  Feel free to disagree.
