Hi dear Serialisters

I'm new on this list and i don't know if the question has already been
We migrated to Sirsi and are on the version 9.2.2.  We are soon be abble to
work with 9.2.3 but we'd like to test this new version before.
In fact, i'm training with the Serials Control, which will be on work soon.
I'd like to hear from you, how do you manage all the vol./items received,
even if you don't want to put them in the public catalog ?
When i receive items, for instance, i don't know where the Serials control
record them (in which fields display or not in OPAC) ?
What happens to the entire collections already mentioned in the catalog,
either the serial is "active" or "dead".
Is it important to put them in holding records and how do you do that ?
Any suggestions will be very grateful.
Thank you very much.
