Procedures for Handling Display Copies of Current Magazines
Checking Out to Magazine-C
To prevent the most recent issues of barcoded magazines from going on hold for users, WALS created a checkout process. This procedure works for libraries that put the newest issues on display until the next issue arrives.
The procedure is to check out the newest issues to MAGAZINE-C. When the next issue arrives, check it out and discharge the previous issue.
The user ID is MAGAZINE-C.
Issues checked out to this user display in the catalog as Current Issue, Non-Circulating.
The checkout does not count as circulation.
The due date is NEVER.
