shouldn't this be done with the "w" Subfield of the 773 field (Host Item Entry) of Marc21? I have right now this problem in a Library with a lot of analytical records.

I too used to do something similar when cataloging for an academic
library. Once in a while we would catalog the articles in a journal
(professors often requested it) and we would then attach the item for
the full journal to the article record.
I'd add one more suggestion. Add another table to the database that
takes care of linking the items to the bibs - this table can just have
the ID of the item and ID of the bib - that way you can link the same
item to multiple bibs without duplicating all of the information about
the item and worrying about syncing.
