Serials Processing: Closing Checkin Card
Purpose: To close an inactive checkin card for subsequent removal. For periodicals, binding staff should be notified so they can pull volumes for binding, delete checkin card and create or update holdings record. GovDoc records will also be collected. Will consult Government Publications staff regarding removal and holdings record creation.
Checkin CARDS are closed for print receipt for the following reasons:
- Title change
- Shift to online only format
- Ceased publication
Reason should be apparent in last checkin box (eg. “ONLINE ONLY” or “CANCELLED” or “CEASED”). When this note box is created the status for the checkin card should be changed to F for FILLED.
