    Linking records for bound together monographs

    What is the best way to link records for bound-together monographs?
    I have tried to do this using the ITM type LKR field, but I end up with locations displaying in the OPAC as "no items available."
    Perhaps there is a better way, as there is always an item available. It just happens to be bound with some other title.

    We create a "dummy" item record for some of our serials that are all in paper and don't actually have any bar-coded items. You could put in the item Description that your particular monographs are bound under the other title. This won't actually link the records but it will not display: "No items available."
