Occasionally, a publication yields minimal search results and becomes difficult to find after using a few search methods. When this occurs, you will need to follow the no record procedures listed below.
INTERNET ONLY SHELF
Occasionally, we will receive a print issue for a title for which we only subscribe to the online (internet only) version.
Searching for an internet only title:
Determining an internet only title by examining the record summary:
Determining internet only titles can be tricky, if you don’t know what to look for.

*****NOTE: IF A TITLE HAS BEEN DROPPED OR CANCELED FOR ANY REASON, IT IS NOT AN INTERNET ONLY TITLE, BUT A DROPPED OR CANCELED TITLE AND MUST FOLLOW THE DROPPED/CANCELED TITLE PROCEDURE*****

GENERAL DROPPED/CANCELED TITLE PROCEDURES (also known as "Subscription Overlap"):
As you find the record, if you find that a title has been dropped/canceled for any reason (this could be listed in the check-in record if one still exists, or the bibliographic record as a 947 local note) use the following procedure:
Determining a Dropped/Canceled title:
Dropped/Canceled titles should contain a Local 947 note in the bib record detailing the drop:
LOCAL NOTE 947 DROPPED: Cancel print w/ v.105 (2016). (11/29/16 jdr)
However, in some cases, you will receive a title in which the drop has occurred, but the title hasn't made it through cataloging; therefore no Local Note 947 will be available. In these instances, you must use the Check-in record notes to recognize the dropped/canceled title:
Note DROP SENT TO CAT (02/20/17 anm)
Note DROP: Cancel subscription w/ v.31 no.1 (Fall 2016) ; COUNTED as 1 cancel PERIODICAL print paid primary (09/08/16 anm)
Once you've determined that a title has been dropped/canceled proceed to the following procedure:
