Changes in the system of numbering that do not go back to no. 1
If a publisher changes the system of numbering in some way, without beginning again with “no.1" or its equivalent, do not change the numbering in field 362 (or 500), but make a note when considered important, in field 515.
So for this title, something like:
515 Issues for Nov. 2007- numbered: v. 4, issue 4-

After communicating with the publisher we were told simply that the former publisher (Aspen) has merged with the LRP (current publisher) numbering system. I just checked our holdings and the title has been published by LRP back through January 2006 so this is not a new publisher. The title has not changed, only the numbering.
