III users - do you add item records for your periodicals? Winward, Kyle D 23 Mar 2005 22:48 UTC

We are Innovative Interface users in a preliminary process of examining
the possibility of adding item records for our bound periodicals. My
question for III users who add item records for your bound periodicals
is are you doing this mostly for circulation purposes or for statistical
purposes? Since our bound periodicals circulate to a limited user pool,
we are more interested in the implications for statistical than
circulation purposes. However, we would be interested in feedback from
any III users who do add item records for their bound periodicals. What
are the main challenges in adding this process, both from systems and
workflow considerations? Also, for those III users who don't add item
records what are your reasons for not doing so?

Thank you in advance,
