Re: Help need for an 853 tag entry Myrna Hermann 23 Nov 2006 00:06 UTC

Hello Frieda,

Thank you very much for your email.

Previous to 2006, we had ignored the extra number information.
Vol. 46 No. 12 No. 342 Dec 2005
Vol. \b no. \u 12 \v r \i (year) \j (month) \w m

The 2006 issues we have in hand are as follows -
Issue 1 Vol. 47 No. 125 No. 343 2006
Issue 2 Vol. 47 No. 126 No. 344 2006
Issue 4 Vol. 47 No. 128 No. 345 2006

This is in the exact format as shown on each issue.
Also, you can see that we have anomalies in the issue numbering as well.

All in all, this is an awful publication to try and structure an 853 tag

All suggestions greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,

Myrna Hermann

Hi Myrna -
If the issue information changes quarterly, and the volume number
changes yearly, then isn't the volume number a larger unit than the
issue (and should therefore be to its left?)  The \u and \v after issue
don't match what you're telling us about its pattern.
Then there are two further levels of numbers?
I can't quite picture this, so it would be helpful if you could just
show us in order what has come in for, say, two years of issues.
Issue 1 volume 1 no. 1 no. 1 [year]   (is what you're saying, right?)

You might also ask the user group of your system this question, if we
can't straighten it out.  Hope to hear back from you.
