Yes, record label numbers are issue numbers.  I was surprised, though to
look at the current mapping chart on the website to see that only 028$a is
mapped to MODS identifier.  I have been mapping both 028$ba--the label and
the number.  Maybe we can check on that at LC to see if that's what's
really intended.  In many contexts a label number with no label name can
be kind of meaningless.

I look at the MODS sound recording example on the website and the
identifier tag seems to be missing even though the source MARC record in
Voyager has an 028 (same as what's given as the call number or
"classification" in the example

http://www.loc.gov/standards/mods/v3/mods94759273.xml

So should an 028 transcribed in MODS "identifier" contain both the label
name and number?
