Hi Steve (and Jamie)

I assume you're talking about the 4 fields adjacent to each other, right
after the title field for the alternate ids.  We do use two of these
fields, the second indicating a small collection.  The system automatically
generates a dash between the two fields (i.e. MS 001-sc).  Although I
haven't published anything, this is the way it appears in the browse view.

Best,

Beth
