Jeanette and others,

When circulation or serials people find pages missing from a periodical,
the issue is taken to the ILL department and a request is sent for missing

We clearly state in our request that the patron is the serials department
and the pages are missing from our copy.  We assume that the lending
library will only copy those pages that are relevant to the missing
article, and not necessarily any advertisements.

However, if a library specifically asks us to copy ALL missing pages,
including ads, we will do so.

We also order missing pages through Interlibrary Loan.  We occassionally
have the same problems you discuss, but most times the pages come
through as requested.  Our Interlibrary Loan folks use OCLC and WLN
primarily, and I've seen on our copy of the request, in the comments

*********MISSING PAGES********

Perhaps your interlibrary loan folks can do something like this as well.

Subject:      Replacing Pages through ILL

At Trent, when ILL, circulation or a student finds pages missing
they are directed to bring the item to the Serials Department and
we initiate the request for ILL replacement copies. All our ILL
requests require an account number to charge (if there are

In our ILL request we note that the pages are for replacement and
re-binding and ILL also note that information in their request
along with instructions that the photocopies have wide margins to
accomodate the re-binding. Most of our requests are for pages, not
for articles.

In my experience, all pages requested are photocopied and sent
back. If they are advertisements, the pages are also copied.

Additionally, we do inform students who need the information that
when we receive our ILL request, we will give them copies so that
they don't need to pay for their own ILL request.

Hi Jeanette

When I need replacement pages from ILL, they type in BOLD "REPLACEMENT
PAGES" on the ill rq.

Occasionally the sending library doesn't send them all, but not often.

I have had much success using ILL to get replacement pages.  I always
ask for high-contrast, untrimmed, unreduced copies of specific page
runs, stating the purpose of my request.  Often they overlook my special
instructions on the lender's end: the margins are not large enough, or
they omit non-text pages.   Then I must ILL the same pages again,
preferably from a different supplier.  This ties up the vandalized
volume for a few weeks longer, but it is worth the wait to have bindable
pages.  Ideally, the replacement pages would be two sided exactly like
the originals, but precisely conveying such a request is difficult.
Single sided pages are adequate, provided the gutter margin is wide
