  • Chronology Statements:
    If there is a chronology in the title of the proceeding (e.g. 2014 Conference of the North American Packagement Society), it is not a one-off issue and you should check for the publication frequency.
    The title itself may contain some wording that alludes to publication frequency, (e.g., The 14th Annual Conference of the North American Packagement Society) or it may be noted elsewhere on the piece. If you determine that the proceedings are published more frequently than triennially, the title should be cataloged as a serial. Anything cataloged published less frequently than triennially will most likely be cataloged as a monograph, particularly something that looks like a one-off issue. Exceptions may be made to this policy if there is some compelling reason, such as a request from a collection manager to catalog the title one way or another.
