Here at Wichita Public Library they used cardex, arranged alphabetically. Each time a magazine or newspaper arrived a mark was made on the card to show it was received for that date.

Subject: [SERIALST] Small Library
I am aetting up a small library and I was wondering if anyone had any
suggestions about managing my periodicals. I am running everything off of
spreadsheets right now...a OPAC is in the works for the beginning of next
year. I have a excel list of all my periodicals but I have no way to
verify which ones I have actually recieved each month. Does anyone have
any ideas about how I should set this up?
