I find that it is necessary to check in and file claims for journals.
There are many journals we don't receive until we claim once or twice.
The time it takes to do the claims is worth the time. We use Innovative
and it is a very simple process.

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!
