Karen,

ISSN is always recorded in the series statement (490 $x) when it is present on a manifestation.  If the ISSN on the manifestation is incorrect or inappropriate, it is still transcribed as found.  This is not a change from AACR2 practice.

RDA 2.12.8.3  Recording the ISSN of a Series
Transcribe the ISSN (International Standard Serial Number) of a series as it appears on the source of information.

RDA 2.12.16.3  Recording the ISSN of a Subseries
Transcribe the ISSN (International Standard Serial Number) of a subseries as it appears on the source of information.

ISSN is not a core element in RDA manifestation descriptions, but it is a core element for the PCC.


It's important not to confuse what's recorded as manifestation information (series statement elements specified in chapter 2 of RDA and recorded in 490 in MARC) and whole-part work relationships that are recorded as authorized series access points in MARC 8XX and are covered by other chapters in RDA (i.e., chapter 6 for a series as a work, including ISSN as a work identifier, and chapters 24-26 for relationships, including 24.6 for numbering of part).   Note that Numbering within Series (2.12.9) is NOT the same element as Numbering of Part (24.6).  One is a manifestation attribute, the other is used as the name of the part of a work when a relationship is being recorded for that part.  The difficultly with all this is that in many cases, a particular work was only published once, will only ever be published once, so if the one and only manifestation of that work happened to be in a series, 
it does make sense to treat the work as being in a particular series (i.e., a work to work whole-part relationship).  But as Joe Kiegel demonstrated with his Hamlet example, as soon as different manifestations of an expression of a work appear in different series, the relationship really isn't work to work anymore, it's manifestation to work.
