Re: India Today volume numbering? Barbara Allred 26 Jan 2009 22:20 UTC

Some months back this came up on SERIALST.  It was told that, because, this title has a new publisher, they started the numbering over again.  As for what to do... our library decided to wait to see how the numbering is in 2009 before we change our enumerations.  We have been checking them in as if they were volume 7 issue 27 etc and we put a healthy note in our record explaining what has happened.  So it will be the 2009 issues that will make the decision up for us.
(This was because the publisher has gone back and forth so often we didn't want to have to change thing if the 2009 issues would be going to back to the volume 7 enumerations).

Subject: [SERIALST] India Today volume numbering?

Any insights...

I know that India Today changed titles back and forth to/from India Today

But now we have June 24-30, 2008 numbered as v.7:no.26 and the next issue,
July 1-7, 2008 starting again with volume 1:no.27.

What is up with this? How should we bind this creature?

Thanks in advance,
