Re: tracking usage of current print journal issues Sarah Hartman-Caverly 20 Sep 2011 20:08 UTC

Hi Kate,

We put a barcode on the shelf label for the current journal issues, so that as the issues are re-shelved our student assistants can scan the barcodes to count the use.

Hope that helps!

I’m a new serials librarian. We are barcoding our bound journal issues for inventory and statistical purposes. But with current issues, we'll be deleting those individual barcodes once they are bound and replacing them with one for the bound volume, and would therefore lose the stats associated with those barcodes. I’d be interested to hear how other libraries handle this issue.
