Subject:      Re: Standing Order /or/ Periodical

Our policy/practice at Western Kentucky U. is for the Serials Unit to order
everything that relates to standing orders (multivolume sets, series, just
about anything that has an indefinite future, so encyclopedias are exluded --
thank goodness). We place all orders through a sole vendor when possible or di-
rect and maintain all records on one system. I think we have too many standing
orders that are "inactive" but we do maintain good control of titles in this
way.  This came as part of a centralized serials unit in 1981. This year I am
asking the collection development coord. to review these standing orders and
perhaps scale down some that only require title-by-title orders, such as
Brookings or Hoover titles for our Government department.

We here at the University of Regina process close to 5,000 titles and
have 3 1/2 FTE.  Our setup is the same as that at Arizona State University
West except that we do not handle bindery operations.

        We at the University of Pennsylvania also include standing orders
for monographic series within the purview of the Serials Dept.  Once they
are received they are sent on to pre-cat searching for the next step.  We
do not handle any orders for sets (multi-vol. works that have a known
end--works of, encyclopedias, etc.); they are taken care of by the
monograph acquisitions dept.
