Re: Serials check in? Skwor, Jeanette 19 Nov 2007 22:02 UTC

We spot check online subscriptions periodically and it is not at all unusual to find several that are not working for one reason or another.

Am Very Interested in responses to your second question, because it seems to me that we are just out of luck on any missing electronic access.

Thanks,

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. :-)
