This topic has been discussed several times, and is can be found in the Serialst archives.

>From the Usage Guidelines:
--------------------------------------------
5.1. SEARCHING THE ARCHIVES via E-MAIL

 It is possible to search the entire SERIALST message database via the  web or by submitting an e-mail message/search request to  LISTSERV@LIST.UVM.EDU

 You may cut and paste the following search line into an e-mail message  (overlay the "<add keyword search terms here>" text with keywords that  are appropriate to your search). Send the template/e-mail message to:
 LISTSERV@LIST.UVM.EDU. Leave the subject line blank.

 The search syntax is:

 Search <add keyword search terms here*> in SERIALST since <date=yy/mm/dd**>

 * where keywords = your search term(s). You may use Boolean logic.
 ** you may, optionally, specify a date limitation, rather than  searching the entire database.

 for example:

 --------------------clip here---------------------

         search worst and 'title change' in serialst since 97/03/10

 --------------------clip here----------------------

 You may also search by BOOLEAN queries and/or search limitations by  date. To obtain more information about search commands, send a HELP  message to: LISTSERV@LIST.UVM.EDU

You mean you want to stop checking all of your journals in? How would you keep track of what you have and don't have? How would your patrons know where to find the information they need?

Subject: [SERIALST] Serials check in?

Hello everyone,

We think to stop checking in journals. I just wonder who has this experience and do you recommend this? Any comments and suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks!
