   - Frequency considerations. In this example, we know that the periodical is a monthly. ​ If it had a greater frequency or was irregular (frequency unknown), the holdings would be expressed as v.26 (1992)-v.29:​no.6 (1995), v.29:​no.8-12 (1995), v.30 (1996)-v.33 (1999)   - Frequency considerations.

   - Where there is a combined year, we repeat the combination after every number in the incomplete statement, even though it may be more literally accurate not to do this: v.3:no.1 (1941/​1942),​ v.3:no.3-6 (1941/​1942),​ versus v.3:no.1 (1941), v.3:no.3-6 (1942). ​ Following the latter procedure would entail too much labor-intensive checking of individual volumes.   - Where there is a combined year, we repeat the combination after every number in the incomplete statement, even though it may be more literally accurate not to do this: v.3:no.1 (1941/​1942),​ v.3:no.3-6 (1941/​1942),​ versus v.3:no.1 (1941), v.3:no.3-6 (1942). ​ Following the latter procedure would entail too much labor-intensive checking of individual volumes.
-  - UMass policy is to allow a combination of 2nd level enumeration (without repeating the captions) as long as no gap exists within the combination. ​ **Example:​** ​ 1990:​no.4-1990:​no.7, 1990:​no.10-1995. 1990:no.4-7, 1990:​no.10-1995 //can be written as:// 1990:​no.4-7,​ 1990:​no.10-1995.  ​+  - UMass policy is to allow a combination of 2nd level enumeration (without repeating the captions) as long as no gap exists within the combination. ​ **Example:​** ​ 1990:​no.4-1990:​no.7,​ 1990:​no.10-1995 //can be written as:// 1990:​no.4-7,​ 1990:​no.10-1995.  ​
     - Exception: ​ More than one gap exists in a volume'​s 2nd level enumeration,​ but not if adjoining the next volume in the statement. ​ **Example:​** ​ 1990:​no.4-5,​ 1990:​no.7-8,​ 1990:​no.10-1995 //can be written as// 1990:​no.4-5,​7-8,​1990:​no.10-1995. ​ Combining "4-5, 7-8" makes the statement easier to read.     - Exception: ​ More than one gap exists in a volume'​s 2nd level enumeration,​ but not if adjoining the next volume in the statement. ​ **Example:​** ​ 1990:​no.4-5,​ 1990:​no.7-8,​ 1990:​no.10-1995 //can be written as// 1990:​no.4-5,​7-8,​1990:​no.10-1995. ​ Combining "4-5, 7-8" makes the statement easier to read.
-    - Do **not** combine 2nd level enumeration if adjoining next volume, as this can create ambiguity. ​ **Examples: ** 1990:​no.830-831,​ 832-1991 //better as:// 1990:​no.830-831,​ 1990:​no.832-1991;​ v.7:no.6-7, 9 (1992)-v.11 (1993) //better as:// v.7:no.6-7 (1992), v.7:no.9 (1992)-v.11 (1993)).+    - Do **not** combine 2nd level enumeration if adjoining next volume, as this can create ambiguity. ​ **Examples: ** 1990:​no.830-831,​ 832-1991 //better as:// 1990:​no.830-831,​ 1990:​no.832-1991;​ v.7:no.6-7, 9 (1992)-v.11 (1993) //better as:// v.7:no.6-7 (1992), v.7:no.9 (1992)-v.11 (1993).
