Re: Software for serials records Linda Hofmann 10 Dec 1998 06:12 UTC
I do serials acquisitions at a library in a suburb of Chicago. In the
course of my job I have been able to go to several meetings of a local
serials SIG group. At one of these meetings about two years ago, a woman
from a nearby suburb did a presentation on a stand-alone software program
she designed for serials checkin. It is called Magazine Manager. It was
originally created for use on PCs with DOS, but I believe she was working on
a windows based version. I was very impressed with the capapbilities of
such an apparently simple program. It was a database program which allowed
for title records to which you could attach barcodes for each issue that
came in. It would be ideal for a library that does not have an integrated
system such as the one at the library where I work. I am sorry to say I do
not remember her name, or have ready access to ordering information.
Perhaps someone else on the list has more information.
