We don't end up binding a volume if an issue is missing. We try to
locate the missing issue (even if it is out of print the publisher is
sometimes willing to make a photocopy, or you can print out the online
version). If that is not possible, we place the loose issues in a file
case and shelve it in the appropriate place.

Good afternoon!
I am trying to find out how other libraries handle binding incomplete
serial volumes where 1 or 2 issues are missing.  Do you bind them or
not?  Also, what do you place on the spines of those bound volumes,
e.g.,  Incomplete, Lacks v. 51 n. 1?  Any information you could share
with me would be most appreciated.  Thank you in advance and have a
great day!
