I check it in as is, with quotes around the identification and wait to
see what happens with the next issue.  If it reverts, I go back and
correct the preceding issue (in actuality - inside the paper issue) and
in the record, perhaps in parentheses.  If not, I continue with the
quotation marks, or a (sic).

I would check with the publisher and/or other libraries before I bound
it, though, assuming that it remained incorrect and skipped.   We do not
bind incomplete volumes & I want to make very sure I am not doing that.

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

Thanks for any input on or off of the list!
