We are still working with our manual check-in, which is de-centralized. We would like to stay de-centralized when we go to an automated check-in.

Our ILS is NOTIS. So far we have a centralized check-in meaning that the serials for the two branch libraries are checked in at the main library and then sent across campus via campus mail service. There is an upcoming discussion regarding letting the branch libraries do their own checking-in. I'd like to hear from any who have done this. I'll summarize for the list if there's interest. AND...is the mail sent directly to the branch libraries by the publisher? Do they do their own claims? What are the biggest pros and cons? Thanks for any input.
