A volume is a physical book in codex format. It may be printed or manuscript. The term may be used to identify a single book that is part of a larger collection.

The term is also used as an identifier for a sequence of periodicals, generally based on a single calendar year. However, a school magazine might start each new volume at the beginning of the academic year, or at the beginning of each term/semester. Thus, all issues published in the Nth term or year will be classified under the Nth volume. [1]
