Hi Karen,

The little title can really be a pain.  We catalog our periodicals and so
the three sections are cataloged separately.  If we bound them, I would bind
them separately.  We do not bind them, we box them.  This way we can insert
any issues that arrive out of order.  Eased by blood pressure when this
decision was made.

Good luck,

Good morning -  I would love to hear from other people how they have been
handling the problem of binding the MMWR. The procedure I inherited was to
bind them all as a single volume. It's growing into a monster which is no
longer one volume, and I was wondering if the CDC website makes binding
unnecessary. What are people doing? Are you still binding? Do you bind
the SS series and the RR series differently?  Do you catalog them
differently? I have the discussion from earlier in the year, but it
didn't give me any insight into what others are doing with binding. We are
reducing our binding, and part of me would just like to leave this one out
of the order.

Your help would be appreciated.  Karen.
