German term or phrase: in mehreren Editionen
"die Bestände sollen auf Mikrofiche verfilmt und in mehreren Editionen herausgegeben werden." Would you translate "in mehreren Editionen" as a) "[published]in a number of editions" or b) "[published] in a number of volumes"? Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
