Paid Set Up: The University Libraries may decide to seek an ongoing paid subscription through the publisher or vendor. The Serials Acquisitions Manager will let the Serials Processing Specialist know about the new paid set up. After finding out about the new paid set up, the Serials Processing Specialist will initiate the process by exporting an OCLC record or creating a brief bibliographic record, and creating the new check in record. Next, the paperwork and issue(s) will be sent to the Serials Acquisitions Manager so they can create the paid order record then everything can be sent to the Serials Cataloging Supervisor to be cataloged. After everything is cataloged, the Serials Cataloging Supervisor will return the paperwork and issue(s) back to the Serials Processing Specialist to finish up the processing of the new paid title.
You will either export the OCLC record of the serial title or create a brief bibliographic record in Sierra if original cataloging is needed.
