October 22, 1999

  1. Online Serials Check-in Progress Report
  2. Need Articles For SUL/AIR NEWS
  3. SUL/AIR Job Opportunities


Serials staff and a few representatives from other units began to create online serials control records on September 30, 1999. As of Tuesday, October 19, more than 2500 control records have been created.

Conversion began with priority titles identified by branches and other service units. These units provided Serials with invaluable assistance by photocopying recent pieces to ensure that we had the most accurate data possible for record creation.

Staff are now at work converting all periodicals that are received to online control. With this approach, the most frequent titles have been converted first. As a result, we are already checking in fifty to ninety issues online each day in addition to the issues checked in at conversion.

This is an exciting and draining time for Serials. If you happen to see a Serials staff member out and about (though this is not particularly likely right now), please share a word of encouragement with that person.
