When a serial is related to another work, decide first whether the related work is a monograph or a serial.

If the related work is a serial, decide whether it should be cataloged separately or mentioned in a note on the record for the main serial.

In making the decision, consider the factors that are relevant for the type of related work and the various options for cataloging. Is there a clear-cut choice or does the decision have to be made on a case-by-case basis?

When cataloging the related work as a separate serial, decide what is needed in the way of a link, note, and added entry.

When the related wok is cataloged separately as a monograph, an added entry for the serial is given on the monograph record. If appropriate, a note may be added to the serial record but not a link.
