      I have come across a few items in our collection that are made of of many small components. For example, I am currently cataloging a “hemocytometer” that has many tubes, etc. Should this be cataloged with just one object number and the parts all listed in the description? Or should each part be given it’s own object number, labeled, and put into the system separately? If to be labeled separately, what is the best method to label many small parts, and how should each part be used with nomenclature, since its not a whole item?
