We used to analyze single journal issues with monographic titles, for example the "Clinics of North America" series of titles or any of the "Acta ..." supplements. This was primarily due to the fact that we had an online catalog and print indexes. The analytic records were created to supplement the print. Process: OCLC would be searched for a record for import and if one was not found, the cataloger created a local MARC record with full subject analysis to represent the monographic title. The record would be connected to the item using a "bound with" feature. HOWEVER, the actual issue was shelved or bound with the main title of the journal. Once the index services (MEDLINE, CINAHL, ISI, etc.) began to make online searching of the indexes more user friendly and inexpensive, we slowly stopped analyzing issues. Most of the issues are well represented in the indexes both at the monograph title level and at the article level. Currently we only have two titles we analyze - WHO Technical Reports and Annals of the NYAS. BTW - Our bound volumes circulate for 24 hrs. We do not allow unbound issues to circ. Good luck with your decision.

Now we are cataloging them separately, and working on a retrospective catalog of the title also. ***In answer, then, to who in your library makes the decision, it's sort of a group thing. Whoever happens to notice a reason to catalogue something separately would broach whoever else it impacts, and the decision is made consentually.
