for captions from Cornell)
A caption is an alphabetic word or phrase attached
as a prefix to the enumeration data that describes the type of data (for
example, volume, Band, Heft, part, number, or tome)
It is sufficient to transcribe the caption only
at the beginning of the range to save space.
In the absence of a caption, a generic one should
be supplied, e.g. "v." The main objective is to make the Status line intelligible
for the patrons to the extent possible.
