It generally takes us a few hours to a day to process the majority of our
journals.  There are exceptions when staff is on leave or it is a problem
title.  (Problem titles?  Surely not.)  Our newspapers are out in a few
hours.  We give priority to the newspapers are they are more time sensitive.

Subject: [SERIALST] Turn-Around Time for Journals

Hello All,

Our library is taking a look at some of our daily procedures in hopes of
becoming more efficient and a question arose about the turn around time
of processing incoming journals.

I was hoping some of you might share how long it takes from the time
your journals arrive in the mail to when they are placed on the shelves
and ready for patrons to view?  A week, a day, or a few hours?  I'm just
looking for an estimate or average.  Any information would be helpful.

Thanks so much,

Holly Spindler
