DOCUMENT ACCESSIONING:

All the books and documents received in the  library are taken into its stock  by a process called Accessioning which involves the assignment of a serial number called Accession Number. In the case of books donated, they are assigned a Donation Number in addition to the Accession Number. When loose issues of periodicals are bound into a volume, they are given accession numbers. While in some organisations the accession numbers are given to documents after  technical processing, in others, its is done first. Once  an accession number  is assigned, it is deemed to be the property of the library.

•  Definition of "volume" 

•  Periodical publications
