Subject: serial cataloguing

I would like some advice about a project that I have been given to
catalogue the serial collection in our Institute.  Before I can start
cataloguing online I have compiled a printed list of the serials we have
according to title in alphabetical order. This is a long process as we
have about 10,000 serials. I have had some experience in retrospective
cataloguing in my last job at the Natural History Museum and I wonder if
it is possible to just scan the title page of the first volume of each
journal title in to a database and then import it, in to our Library
software "Heritage".

I will be grateful for any advice. My e-mail is
thank you.
