question re: MFHD Kemp, Rebecca 14 Mar 2008 21:18 UTC

Hi, all- I am new to MFHD and reporting local holdings in OCLC, so I
have a question regarding a title for which I want to report holdings.
The title is Philosophia Christi, and we have only a few volumes in the
new series.  I was looking for an example of this type of holdings in
the NASIGuide, and this is what I found, on :

853 	01 	$8 1 $a v. $i (year)
863 	40 	$8 1.1 $a 1-40 $i 1940-1979
853 	01 	$8 2 $a new ser.:v. $i (year) $g old ser.:v.
863 	01 	$8 2.1 $a 1-35 $i 1980-2004 $g 41-75

Displays as: 	v.1-40(1940-1979)
new ser.:v.1-35(1980-2004)=old ser.:v.41-75

Should I use this model, using 853 $a new ser:v , even though there is
not a parallel numbering scheme for an old series?  And how should I
represent this in the summary holdings view?  Should it read "New series
v.1:1(1999)-v.2:2(2000), v.3:2(2001)"?

Thanks for considering,
