1.2.8 Chronological designations for serials

[type of data: transcribed data (literal); repeatable]

If the first issue of the first serial title and/or last issue of the last serial title of a serial work is identified by a chronological designation, record it following the instructions in 1.2.6.

If the serial issue includes both a numeric/alphabetic and a chronological designation, record the numeric/alphabetic designation first and enclose the chronological designation in parentheses. Do so regardless of the presentation of this numbering data on the issue, even if the cataloger had to take the numeric/alphabetic designation from one source and the chronology from another (e.g., chronology on the cover and numberic/alphabetic designation on the masthead).
