This report shows titles that have copies both with and without periodical information.
IMMS receives periodical information from the LMS interface in the form of three values for each item: Year, number, and volume. Each of these fields can either be filled in or empty.
If there is just one copy of a title, which has periodical information listed, the entire title is treated as a periodical with respect to the automatic life cycle management, and the title will then never match a life cycle rule.
