Definition

For serials, field 362 contains beginning and/or ending alphabetic, numeric and/or chronological designations of the issues or parts. Chronological designations used in this field are dates that identify individual issues of a serial. In general, publication dates are input in field 260 or field 264. Do not use this field for incomplete serial dates. Record uncertain dates/numbers in an unformatted note followed by a question mark.

For integrating resources, field 362 contains beginning and/or ending publication dates when the first or last iteration of the resource is not available. Record publication dates in field 260 or field 264 when the first or last iteration is available. For integrating resources, use this field for incomplete dates. Use field 362 only as an unformatted note.

Dates in field 362 may be identical to the information in the fixed-field element Dates. See Dates for more information.

Repeat field 362 only when one of the fields has a 1st indicator value of and the other has a 1st indicator value of 1. When both beginning and ending designations are formatted, or both are unformatted, record them in a single 362 field.

1st Indicator

Format of date. Whether the date is in a formatted style or an unformatted note.
 
Formatted style. The date is in a formatted rather than a note form. Formatted dates are displayed following the title and edition statements. Record the numeric and/or alphabetic, chronological or other designation as it appears on the piece.
 
1 Unformatted note. The date is given in an unformatted note style. Unformatted date information is displayed as a note. Use when the first and/or last piece is not in hand, but the information is known from other pieces or sources.

2nd Indicator

Undefined. The 2nd indicator position is undefined and contains a blank ( blank character ).
 
blank character Undefined 

Subfields

 
‡a Dates of publication and/or sequential designation   The sequential designation and/or dates of publication. The sequential designation may consist of edition number, issue number, volume number, series of volume numbers or other sequential designations according to the usage of the publisher.

The date may consist of the month and/or day and year; month or season and year; or year alone, depending upon the frequency of publication and the usage of the publisher. Sequential designators and dates are recorded as given on the item. When both a numeric designation and a chronological designation are given, the chronological designation is enclosed in parentheses. The ending designation is recorded following the beginning designation.

AACR2 prescribes four spaces after the hyphen of an open numbering scheme. However, the system displays only one space at the end of a subfield. Therefore, enter only one space after a hyphen that is the final character of subfield ‡a.

362   1-
362   No. 1-
362   Vol. 2, no. 6-
362   Issue no. 1

362   1975-
362   No. 1-
362   Vol. ASSP-22, no. 1 (Feb. 1974)-

If the serial is complete, use subfield ‡a for the designation of the first issue followed by the designation of the last issue.

362   1950-1957.
362   Vol. 1, no. 1 (Sept./Oct. 1980)-v. 2, no. 3 (Jan./Feb. 1982).

362   -v. 116, no. 5 (Nov. 1959).

If the serial has more than one system of designation, enter all the systems in a single subfield ‡a. Enter space equal-sign space ( = ) before an alternative numbering. If the serial is incomplete, enter three spaces after a hyphen that is followed by other data.

362   Vol. 3, no. 7-    = no. 31-

Enter successive designations in subfield ‡a. Enter a space-semicolon-space ( ; ) before each new sequence.

362   Vol. 1 no. 1 (Nov. 1943)-v. 10 no. 12 (June 1953) ; no. 1 (July 1974)-

If you are cataloging a facsimile or other reprint, enter the numeric and/or alphabetic designation of the original. Enter the date on which the publication started on a regular basis, not the date of a preview or sample issue.

362   Mar. 1973-
515     Preceded by a "preview edition" dated Oct. 1971.

You may enter a statement of dates and volume designations in an unformatted note.

362   1 Began with Oct. 1926 issue. ‡z Cf. Union list of serials.
362   1 Began publication in 1961. ‡z Cf. New serial titles, 1964.
362   1 Ceased with Sept. 1954 issue. ‡z Cf. New serial titles.

Follow these guidelines for entering dates for integrating resources:

  • When no date information is present, omit field 260 subfield ‡c or field 264 and record the approximate date in field 362 subfield ‡a, with the first indicator value 1.
    362 1   Began in 1990s.
  • When only a single copyright date is present, omit field 260 subfield ‡c or field 264 and record the approximate beginning date in field 362 subfield ‡a, with the 1st indicator value 1.
  • When a range of copyright dates is present, suggesting that the first date may be the beginning date, omit field 260 subfield ‡c or field 264 and record the probable beginning date in field 362 subfield ‡a, with the 1st indicator value 1.
    362 1   Began publication in 1998?
  • When an explicit statement of when the integrating resource first came online is present, record it as the beginning date in field 260 subfield ‡c or field 264.
‡z Source of information   A citation of the source of the information contained in subfield ‡a. Use only when the 1st indicator is value 1. The title of the publication cited is preceded by the abbreviation Cf.
362   1 Ceased with Sept. 1954 issue. ‡z Cf. New serial titles.

Printing

Field 362 prints in the title paragraph if the 1st indicator value is . If the 1st indicator value is 1, field 362 prints as a note.
 

The print program prints up to two 362 fields. It prints one 362 field with 1st indicator value and one with 1st indicator value 1 or two 362 fields with two 1st indicator values of 1.

Notes print following the frequency note ( Freq or fields 310 and 321). If there is no frequency note, field 362 prints as the first note.

If the record contains a field 362 with 1st indicator value , the print program supplies a space-dash-space ( -- ) between the fields that precede it and the fields that follow it.

AACR2 prescribes four spaces after the hyphen of an open numbering scheme. The print program does not standardize the number of spaces that follow a hyphen within a subfield. Therefore, when you are editing an existing record for card production, you must enter four spaces between a hyphen and following data.

However, the print program standardizes the number of spaces at the beginning and ending of field 362 if it begins or ends with a hyphen. If field 362 begins with a hyphen, the print program supplies three spaces preceding the hyphen. If field 362 ends with a hyphen, the print program supplies three spaces after the hyphen.
