When a self identifier contains a lower-case s (for example 37s) or a text 'SARJAT', it means, that the book is alphabetised to the shelf according to the name of the series. Inside the series, the parts are in numerical order. So you need the full name of the series and the number of that part, for instance: Joensuun yliopisto, kasvatustieteiden tiedekunnan tutkimuksia, n:o 99.
