Additional Examples

1. Semiannual. Volume 3 is issued in 2 separate bound physical parts. Since the 2 parts are intended to stand separately on the shelf, the part number is recorded in ENUM even if part 2 is missing. In this example, the publisher did not supply chronological detail below the year.

2. Quarterly. Ano 25 is bound in one physical part; no. 1 is missing. Since the volume is bound in one physical part, the subordinate part detail is not recorded in ENUM even when subordinate parts are missing. The gaps should be recorded in MFHD and optionally in Free Text. For formatting purposes, an underscore is entered between the unabbreviated caption and the volume number, since a space would force the volume number to the subsequent line.

3. Monthly (volume with 12 subordinate parts). Vol. 96 is bound in 2 physical parts; no. 1, 8, & 11 are missing.

Item record for first physical part. Note that the numbers following the colon represent bibliographic rather than physical parts. In this example, note that the complete enumerative designation will fit on one line, but the complete chronological designation will not; a space is inserted following the year to force the month range to the following line.

4. Item record for second physical part. Although no. 8 & 11 are missing, note that ENUM is not recorded as v.96 :no.7,9-10,12. Again, note that the part numbers following the colon represent bibliographic rather than physical parts.

5. Main enumeration with whole number as subordinate. Note that in standard serial cataloging practice, if the volume & consecutive numbers appear together on the source, and the consecutive number functions as a subordinate level of designation, the consecutive number is treated as a subordinate part rather than as an alternative numbering scheme. Issued weekly; 2 months bound in each volume. Underscore inserted in "new_ser." to prevent line break.

6. Main enumeration with whole number as alternative numbering (since the main number has its own subordinate numbering scheme, the consecutive numbering is treated as an alternative number). Decision made to record alternative numbering in ENUM because of citation practice. Monthly, bound twice a year.
