Will you please e-mail me a copy.
At this time we checkin and claim in the acquisitions unit, and then distribute to our Central periodical unit and 15 branches. Centralized checkin works but we are always looking for ways to improve.

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.)
