Re: Circulating bound volumes Sheila Corman 05 Aug 2002 15:13 UTC


We circulate our bound volumes for 7 days and they are renewable. What we find
is that they are usually returned within 2-3 days. People want to take them with
them to photocopy an article.We do allow 2 renewals, but this is seldom used.

I personally think 3 days is a better circulation time, but we've talked about
this, but never changed it.
