Which OS are the computers running that the monitors are connected to?

If Linux and they are running X then then the serial numbers may be in /var/log/Xorg.0.log. If they are not there then the monitors probably don't report their serial numbers but you could try with the read-edid package (might need the parse-edid package too). The protocol is Extended display identification data (EDID).
