Newcastle University Library is installing an Automated Library Systems (ALS) issue system, which will start operation in October 1973. In an ALS issue system each book must have a unique number. At Newcastle all our monographs have an accession number which is adequate for this purpose. Unlike some university libraries, New‐castle issues bound volumes of periodicals as well as monographs, and these do not have an accession number. As we wanted to include periodical issues in the automated system, a number had to be assigned to each volume, and some means devised of recognising which number belonged to which volume.
