Periodical Check-in

Tasks performed during periodical check-in include setting up components and patters if necessary, and checking in the issues in hand using these patterns . A component describes the pattern of publication of a given title and allows you to check in the issues one by one.

Getting started

You'll need to have at least 3 windows open:

  1. OPAC (Netscape view—for current issues information and to check your work to make sure purchase orders are attached to the correct holdings location)

  2. Voyager Acquisitions

  3. Voyager Cataloging

Also, remember that everything we do unless specifically suppressed is displayed in the OPAC immediately after it is done—check in must be consistent and correct!
