Thanks for bringing up this issue, which is one that we've dealt with some
here but not yet in a highly effective or efficient (to my mind, anyway)
way. What we do with both serials and monographs that have accompanying CDs
is to note in the place where the CD would be that the CD is on closed
shelf. The CDs are put into jewel cases and are kept at the circ desk so
that they can be checked in and out with the accompanying material.
Please send a summary of other responses that you get (or forward the
responses on to me).
Good luck!

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
