Our interpretation of the standard has been to follow what's on the piece.
I do believe a lot of the sci/tech journals put the vol., issue no. and
page numbers on the cover, so you could legitimately use a three tiered
holdings statement: v.:no.:p. etc. If the page information is useful
to your patrons I don't see why you shouldn't continue to include it.
As long as you are consistent and clear and the patrons benefit. I
believe we do put page numbers on the holdings record when that is the
designator for binding. As we also do with Abstract nos. for Chem Abstracts,
