Hi Karen,

How would you see serialNumber mentioned by Wes mapping against library item identifiers?

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).
