Subject: Re: Bindery
At Texas A&M University Libraries we have Voyager which does not have a
bindery module yet. Our previous ILS, NOTIS, did provide us with a pull
list which we still miss. When we brought Voyager up we created an Access
program that provides us with a pull list. With about 8000 titles in our
current periodicals room, a pull list is needed to save labor and time.
Also the Access program provides an area to keep binding colors, binding
frequencies or patterns, and other information needed to bind a volume.
Voyager has promised a partial binding module with the next release and I
can't wait to use it.
We also use the software package provided by out commercial binder,
Heckman, to produce binding slips. If you have this option, I would use

We are a small engineering library, and we want to get more methodical
about how we bind periodicals. The integrated library system we use
(Horizon) has a bindery module, and we are considering using it, but
wondered what other colleges are doing in this regard.
If your online system includes a bindery function, do you use it? If
not, do you use some other software to remind you when to pull a volume
for bindery? Do you track what is bound and what isn't in your system?
Have you been satisfied with whatever you are using?
Please let me know.
