Wes, I admit that some of this was a bit cryptic - were you suggesting 
the properties below as a solution? We have looked carefully at the full 
range of schema.org, in particular /Product and /Offer and are aware of 
these. They do not, unfortunately, satisfy our use case. Should "/Offer" 
be expanded to be more than "offer for sale" then the concept of a 
"merchant-specific identifier for a product or service" fits even though 
the actual term "Stock Keeping Unit (SKU)" is not used in the library 
community. None of the others represent a local number for an individual 
item (not product, but single item).

Thanks,
kc
