Serials Control System Procedures and Policies.
Schlembach, Mary C.
This document includes procedures and policies for a networked serials control system originally developed at the Grainger Engineering Library Information Center at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). The serials control systems encompass serials processing, public service, and end-user functions. The system employs a client-server computing architecture with a microcomputer client written in Visual Basic accessing a networked SQL relational database. The serials control systems are designed to expedite check-in, binding, and claiming within a graphical user interface; provide expanded search capabilities and access points; provide the capability for public service staff notes; provide a user-friendly interface for patrons; and serve as a testbed for interface design and database techniques applied to serials control systems, and by extension to other search and retrieval systems. This manual provides an educational tool for librarians or other information professionals who are designing, evaluating, or implementing serials control systems by providing some description of the functionalities available. The manual is divided into the following main sections: Introduction; Serials Check-in Module; Check-in Form; Binding; Administration; and Printing. (AEF)
