I would appreciate it if you would forward to me any replies you get re
handling CDs that accompany periodicals.

Subject: periodicals with CDs

What is everybody doing with CDs that accompany periodical issues ?
The University of Cape Town libraries are wanting to set up a
protocol on how to handle these CDs and we are seeking advice. Where,
 and how, do we keep them so that they are accessible to anyone who
might want to view them? And what records do we keep? And what have
we not yet thought about?

Please send any ideas to me directly:

Many thanks
Caroline Dean

We are also wondering what to do with CDs that accompany periodicals as
supplements or in place of a regular printed issue.  Please post to the
list or send a cc of messages to Caroline Dean at UCT to me as well.

I am also very interested in this topic and would appreciate
hearing from others as to how they have handled these CDs.
If you could respond to me as well, I'd be grateful.

I am very interested in the results of this discussion and would appreciate
seeing answers on the list.  I have redone this concept twice for my own
collection, about 800 current titles, so not too many CDs as yet.  My
latest idea has been to check them in, usually as supplements, and keep
them available through the reference desk.  I will be happy to see what
others are doing.

Please reply to the list.  We struggle with this too.  Right now we
evaluate the CD's; if they are advertising, we toss them.   If they relate
to the journal, we send them for cataloging and place them on reserve.

First off, our ILS is Epixtech's Horizon (used to be Ameritech)

We are also 'fumbling' around not really knowing what to do with them.
However this is what we have decided is best for us.

For Periodical CD's (they are usually either supplements or
proceedings of some symposium)

We take them out of the little envelopes and put them in the
"plastic Jewel cases".

We do create item records in our cataloging module and give them
full barcodes and also put a label on the case with the title, and enumeration.
(hopefully there won't be too much switching around.
( I doubt if any of our journal CD's have ever been used.)

We place the CD's behind our circulation desk where the patron is directed.

Our summary holdings statement has space for a note where we
indicate the existance of CD Supplements etc.  and their location to go to
the Circulation Desk.  Each item also has a note field where we should
have indicated that they are found at the Circ Desk.

There is one title we get.  Medical Image Analysis where EVERY ISSUE
is accompanied by a CD with further images to articles etc.
