I would like to see the response to this addressed to the list.  We have
used the additional MARC record for the annual cumulation on some
titles.  In some instances we have just used one record.  When we do
this, we must check in the annual cumulation as a special issue.  The
annual cumulations are then listed at the bottom of the record for
public display.  I would also be interested in how others handle this
