Something got cut from my previous e-mail, so it make no sense.  We
discard newsletters and things which have minimal value.  However, many
of our "comes with" titles are scholarly journals.   So we include them
with our collection, just as if they had come individually.

First of all, you need to determine what you should really be getting.
Maybe the "extras" are no longer being published or there is a different
package in place now.  We don't consider these freebies.  Somehow, they
are included in the cost of the subscription that they come with.  We
discard our collection, whether it comes singly or with something else.

Subject: [SERIALST] Subscriptions that include extra titles

Hello all,

I'm fairly new as a serials librarian and am still figuring out where
many of our journals came from (previous donations, freebies, etc). I've
noticed that several of our subscriptions used to include other titles
but we're no longer receiving those extras.

In addition, there are several titles that we subscribe to that are
sending another title along with them as part of a package.

Do I add these "freebies" to our catalog? Do I make a space for them on
our display shelf? I'm now having to remove these other titles that have
stopped coming from the display shelf, so I'm wondering what the best
approach to this is.

Thank you,

Jaime Hammond
