Correct 362 (Dee Neff) ERCELAA@ctrvax.Vanderbilt.Edu 24 Aug 1999 16:21 UTC

Subject: Correct 362

I appeal to my fellow serialists to clarify how to put a multiple frequency
statement into proper form for AACR2.  The record I am working on is OCLC
1606055 for Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society.  It is a serial
record and the 362 is in old format.  I know how to change to AACR2 format
for one series of volumes, but this record includes a 2nd and 3rd series.
In the original, each series is separated by a semi-colon.  I checked the
Bibliographic Formats and Standards and the AACR2r manuals, but neither of
them shows exactly this kind of series.

Original: v.1-35 (no. 1-819) Jan. 1865-Jan.1903; 2d ser., v. 1-54, Sept.
1903-Apr. 1953; 3d ser., v. 1-   Mar. 1951-

I would change it to the following:  Vol. 1 (Jan. 1865)-v. 35 (Jan. 1903)
= no. 1-817 ; 2nd ser., vol. 1(Sept. 1903)-v. 54 (Apr. 1953 ; 3rd ser.,
vol. 1 (Mar. 1951)-

I have two specific questions.  Should there be a comma after the "ser." in
each succeeding series? and how should the volume abbreviation be handled
in each succeeding series?  "vol." "Vol." or "v."?

Any help will be gratefully appreciated.
