Re: dropping "indexed in"? STEVE BLACK@FACULTY@ACADEMICAFFAIRS 15 Jun 2006 13:08 UTC


  A few years ago I deleted all 510's for the indexes my library did not
have in print, but kept those that indicated coverage in the indexes
available on our shelves.

  An alternative to JAKE is the CUFTS Journal Search at My understanding is that JAKE
is no longer being maintained, so the data has become outdated.

Subject: [SERIALST] dropping "indexed in"?

 I've noticed that many libraries do not include  "Indexed In" lists for
their serials records.  Ours are in the 510 note field and usually list
print indexes such as Reader's Guide; ABI Inform, etc.    Many libraries
include their Marc format in the opac, and I do not see this information
there either.

 So my question du jour is:  should I keep this info, but hide it from
public view?  or should I delete this stuff?  then what happens if
someone wants to do a retrospective search?  how will they know which
indexes to go back to?

 What is the collective wisdom on this topic?
