Handling display copies of magazines

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.
