Multiple books bound into one vol.

This causes a retrieval problem because the spine does not reflect the item being requested.

1. A seperate bib. record is required for each title in the bound vol. The record must contain a 591 tag (institution specific with note) containing "bound with" information. e.g.

591 # # $a Spine title: Insert the title ...
591 # # $a Spine title of bound vol.: Insert title ...
591 # # $a Cover title of NL copy: The title inserted ...
591 # # $a Spine title of N copy: Insert the title here ...

900 # # $a Bound with ... as needed.

3. Item record

Attach the barcode placed in the bound volume to the item record for the first title.

For the remaining item records use retro barcodes.

There is a spreadsheet where you can find the list of dummy barcodes at:
