I say by the time you find your are missing an issue, it may be to late
claim or out of stock.

I have to say, this idea kind of scares me.  Depending on users to let
you know when you haven't received issues can be risky especially for
delayed titles or titles that just don't get use that much.  You would
be paying for stuff that you don't necessarily ever receive. I wish you
all the best with this, let me know if this works for you guys.

Jennifer,

Yes. Our library system will show something like this "1956 - current".
If we or users find some issue we did not receive we will claim. We are
thinking to test it next year.

Thanks!

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?

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!
