Serials Processing by Subscription Agencies Andrew Clarke 20 May 1993 02:01 UTC

Dear Colleagues: Yesterday I posted a request on the use of consolidation ser-
vices for serials processing, and I now feel that I may not have made myself
sufficiently clear. As some of you might be wondering about this strange
Australian who doesn't know what a subscription agency is :-) :-) my query
is about more than ordering and claiming and forwarding issues: it refers to
the service whereby the agency tattletapes with your kind of tattletape,
stamps issues with your library stamp, puts on a sticker with your library's
call number and follows up claims automatically. I understand that some
agencies will interface with your serials module or give online access to their
database so that your staff don't need to check-in either.

Thanks for your consideration,
