Traditional cataloging rules state that you shouldn't be attaching
multiple item types to one bib record, so if you have multiple copies
of the book those should be on one bib record and if you have an audio
book that should be a different record. Not all libraries follow that
rule, but if that rule is followed then yes patrons would just want
the next copy of the item returned, not a specific item.
