Implementation of the Ohio College Library Center's Proposed Serials Control Subsystem at the University of South Florida Library: Some Preliminary Considerations.
Twitchell, Anne; Sprehn, Mary
An evaluation of the Ohio College Library Center's (OCLC) proposed Serials Control Subsystem was undertaken to determine what effect the system would have on the operation of the Serials Department at the University of South Florida (USF) Library. The system would consist of three components: 1) claiming--identifying missing issues and generating claim notices; 2) binding--identifying a completed binding unit from data input in the serials check-in record; and 3) check-in--on line storage and automatic update of check-in information. The check-in subsystem will be implemented in the near future. Each subsystem is described with special emphasis on how it relates to the present USF manual system, and an effort is made to provide cost and time comparisons to existing procedures. (EMH)
