Re: Binding Incomplete volumes Tschanz, Karen 09 Mar 2005 21:30 UTC

Hi, Sylvia. We prefer to bind, so we claim missing issues, or address a
"Needs" message to other libraries that might have duplicates or issues
to discard. If we cannot secure the missing issues, we shelve the issues
into the appropriate spot in the set on the shelf, or we put them into a
Princeton file or similar if we intend to keep them for awhile.

Hope this helps.

Good afternoon!
I am trying to find out how other libraries handle binding incomplete
serial volumes where 1 or 2 issues are missing.  Do you bind them or
not?  Also, what do you place on the spines of those bound volumes,
e.g.,  Incomplete, Lacks v. 51 n. 1?  Any information you could share
with me would be most appreciated.  Thank you in advance and have a
great day!
