I would love to receive a copy of your article. We just lost two half-time
positions in the library, one of them our check-in clerk and are relying on
volunteers to check in. The library staff does the more complicated
check-ins, though. We eliminated checking in popular magazines we receive as
Thank you very much for your offer.

Subject: [SERIALST] Citation (RE: [SERIALST] dropping serial check-in?)
Here's a citation to the article my boss and I wrote on eliminating
serial check-in. I don't want to revive the long and, er, spirited
thread on this issue that arose on SERIALST a couple of years ago when
the subject first came up, but if anyone wants to contact me directly
with questions or comments about check-in, please feel free.
Also, I can email a copy of this article to anyone who doesn't have
access to it otherwise.
(And just for the record, we did this at U. Nevada Reno, not Las Vegas.)
