Here at the State University of New York at Binghamton we have just com-st comp
pleted two serials review processes. What we have now is a database using DBase
software. We used to have multiple attribution of titles but have sinc  e narro
wed it down to only one department can claim each journal.  Much negotiation we
nt on between bibliographers and university faculty to reach this stage.  We ar
e all happier that we have a one to one attribution of titles.  It will be much
easier in the future.  We do have separate records for the titles in bo th pape
r and microform formats with the cost listed on each.  The department that clai
ms the paper format also gets the mf format.  Parts received on any packages or
memberships must be ALL claimed by the same department.

Hope this helps.
