Yes, if there are only those five volumes in the multipart, the volume titles are different from the multipart title and the volume titles are more than just years.

Hi -- okay, I wondered if LC's new policy would handle the multipart
'common' title *and* the series tracing via multiple 4XX fields.
So five bibliographic records (or however many, in the case of any given
multivol.) instead of one multipart description with a contents note.
Wow, it sounds like LC may need to invest any money it saves from not
doing series authority work in a whole bunch of new server computers --
I suspect the number of bibliographic records in the LC catalog will
*explode* as a result of this change in policy. (Not necessarily a bad
thing, but certainly an observation. It will be interesting to see how
users interpret catalogs containing both 'traditional' multipart
monograph set records *and* multiparts handled in this more distributed
A user's search for "Konkordanz der hethitischen Keilschrifttafeln" in
LC's catalog will retrieve something similar to the following title
results list :
1. Die Textfunde der Grabungen in Bogazko¨y 1906-1912
2. Die Textfunde der Grabungen in Bogazko¨y 1931-1939
3. Die Textfunde der Grabungen in Bogazko¨y 1952-1963
4. Die Textfunde der Grabungen in Bogazko¨y 1964-2004 und Texte anderer
5. Indizes der Konkordanz
