Each record has its type and number at the top.
Click on Get Hldgs, then on Get Items.
Click on Hierarchy to see the relationship among the records. This is a simple, straightforward hierarchy (like most titles in the UIUC Library).
Compare it to the record in the Voyager online catalog. (Full view, then MARC view).
Search title Scandinavian Studies. Select the first record.
The result is a record for a serial. Click on Get Hldgs and see how the holdings record differ from the previous example. Serials often have multiple holdings records if the unbound issues are in one location and the bound volumes in another. Each volume has a line in the holdings (863).
Click on Hierarchy and then on the + sign in front of the second holdings line.

There are two copies in different locations.
The last handout shows how many holdings records (MFHDs) are needed for various situations.

Search ISBN 022668215
Often the most specific search and useful for pre-order searching.
Search for title Wetlands of the American Midwest
The holdings show two different call numbers, both Dewey.
