Skipped or duplicated issue numbers Gullikson, Denise K 03 Oct 2006 20:13 UTC


We are curious as to how other libraries handle the following situation,
or similar situations:

American City & County :  V.121, no.8 (2006 Aug) and the next issue is :
V.121, no.10 (2006 Sept.). There does not appear to be a V.121, no.9.

When the publisher skips an issue number or uses the same issue number for
two different issues, what do you do?  In your check-in record and/or OPAC
(We use Voyager), do you use what the publisher actually has printed on
the serial, or do you put what the correct issue number should be?  What
do you do about labeling these issues when binding them? We are finding
this to cause confusion with binding and with claiming.

Thanks for any input on or off of the list!
