Series Checks in Voyager Acquisitions
Monographic Series (continued)
Lets look at one of these records. (Bring up vol.5) Notice that the 245 field is for an entirely different title. The system is matching on the series 440 field. This is not a standing order record, but merely a volume of the same series, cataloged as a monograph. Since there is no match to our search that lacks a volume number, we can deduce that there is no standing order for this series.
Other complications can arise from the form of the series. An authors collected works cataloged as separates rather than as a bookset is often traced and controlled differently than how the standing order is set up.
For example, our order for the Gesamtausgabe of Martin Heidegger published by Kolstermann is set up under the title Works / Martin Heidegger. The series appearing on some volumes is Gesamtausgabe. III. Abteilung. Searching "works martin heidegger" or "gesamtausgabe martin heidegger" as a Journal Title brings up the bibliographic record for our order. (Point out added title entries)
Finally, in general our policy is not to place standing orders for unnumbered monographic series, but in practice there are a few such orders. There are also some orders for monographs where there is not a true series present, such as ACM package, or proceedings of conferences and meetings, such as those at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.
