Hi All Serialsters out there,

I don't know if this is an issue that was dealt with on this list before, I
have a question about CD-Roms that come with issues of journals.  Sometimes
especially with Science or social science related materials you get a cd-rom
that comes with the issue.  It is not that it belongs with that issue but it
has a topic issue that is discussed in the issue.  Also there is the case of
newspapers issuing cd-roms as well.  There are series that are on cd-rom as
well that come out annually after the paper issues have been published.

How do people create access to these?  Do you have access points in the
catalog within the serial record or do you attach item records for the
cd-roms to the serial record?  Or if you do it another way I would like to
have an idea of how to provide access to these.  I think they are of value
and the students and faculty should know that they are here in the library
for their use.

Thanks for any help.

You can answer me directly or through this list.
