Re: Serials check in? Holman Jenifer S 13 Nov 2007 19:34 UTC

We still check-in our paper journals, but it takes considerably less
time as we get so few paper journals these days.  I am curious, however,
as to how librarians are accounting for their electronic subscriptions?

Do you send in a check and assume they are working unless users
complain?  We've started using our Voyager check-in module to set-up a
"tickler" of sorts so that twice a year we can have a student check the
electronic subscription and make sure that all is well.   It's
interesting that with a paper subscription, if we didn't get an issue
(or a whole volume), we'd get a credit.  What happens if a publisher
gets behind on an electronic journal?

 Examples of lots talk, but not true include the Millennium Bug and the
paperless society.

Just because people say it a lot doesn't mean it's not true. :-)
