Re: daily newspapers Stokes, Judith 12 May 2006 14:40 UTC

We do check in our dailies, but not electronically. We have a little
Kardex folder and our students do the checking in that -- they don't
need to learn our system, just to check in the right box. And it's worth
the effort to us because people do wander into the office to ask about a
particular issue and we hate to go looking for one that hasn't arrived,

Yes, we check in our daily print issues of newspapers.  We only
subscribe to
7 that come daily so it does not take much time.

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.
