We decided not to check in the daily newspapers (we have a record for them
in Innovative but no check in card). It is usually the same person who does
this each day and we only subscribe to five of these.  It saves time in
actually getting the paper on the shelf and she can easily identify one that
is not delivered.

I just returned from the excellent NASIG conference in Denver and in the
midst of the excitement forgot to ask attendees the question my bosses
sent me to ask: does anybody electronically check-in daily newspapers,
either print or e-versions? we are trying to figure out if this is
something that would be worth doing at all of our 75 library branches or
if it is completely impractical. Thanks for any responses.
