Re: Turn-Around Time for Journals Nan Matson 24 Mar 2009 15:09 UTC

Hi Holly,

Our department in Collection Management receives the mail, processes all
journals with a date sticker and a security strip. Then our students
check them in that morning. We have most of the journals on the shelves
for our patrons to view in a few hours.  The problems might not get on
the shelf until the next day.

We have just recently assigned our student workers for the check in duty.

I hope this is helpful. Please contact me, if you have any questions.
