First and Largest Academic Social Network of LIS Professionals in India
We have bound lose journals. For making record please give periodical record format.
SIR DO U HAVE ANY LIBRARY MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE OR NOT? IF YOU HAVE ANY LIS SOFTWARE, SOFTWARE HAVE TO MANAGE THE FACILITY TO MANAGE LOSE JOURNALS AND MAGAZINES.
IF U DON'T HAVE THEN U MAKE CATALOGUE CARD FOR THE MAGAZINES AND JOURNALS.
I REQUEST YOU TO KINDLY DONT POST ANYTHING IN CAPITAL LETTERS. SEE HERE, HOW IT BECOME DIFFICULT TO READ ALL THE UPPER CASE LETTERS.
Dear Sri Ratnesh Kumar Sharma,
Yes, as sri Jangra informed, the LIS Management softwares are able to take care of loose journal records. But in case you don't have such softwares, you can adopt either of the two options:
(a) Kardex without mentioning the frequency in the printed format so that you can print just one card and that will be applicable to all journals or
(b) the traditional register and record manually. From my personal experience, I can say that the later is more easy for Library professionals except one thing, in case you subscribe to many weekly journals and you want to record multiple years in one register, you may have to maintain more than one Register as you record Alphabetically ! .
The format is quite easy. you write the title, year frequency & contact information, publisher, address etc at the top while in the body just put (i) Date of receipt (ii) Vol. (iii) No. (iv) Period [as printed on the journal] & (v) remarks
For Bound journals, it is just like Accession Registers: (i) Date of entry, (ii) Acc. No.OR Record No. (iii)Name of the Journal (iv) Period (like Jan-Mar. or Jan-June or Jan-Dec. as the case may be (This depends upon the thickness of the issues & volume statement of the journal; some times for certain journals, Volume starts in ONE PARTICULAR calender year and completes in the NEXT calender year) & (v) remarks that's all.
Hope I could explain the issue for your convenience.
