*****Note that this section is not referring to routinely claiming for perfect copies of issues that arrive damaged while in transit or defective, as described in the Damaged Items / Journal Maintenance page.
This section refers to the copies publishers send to subscribers of their own accord, when they decide to re-print the entire run of an issue due to a discovered defect or error and request, usually via a letter accompanying the mailed replacement, that subscribers/institutions discard the original flawed copy.

Sometimes the publisher won’t reprint the entire issue and instead will send a correction in the form of replacement pages, an addendum, or a sticky label for the cover, spine, or specific place within the issue. Review with Binding about tipping in the page(s). (If you send an item to Preservation for repair, be sure to enter an "@serials:binding (d/I)" public note, brief explanation staff note, and if there is an item record, change the status to a="AT SERIALS" and include an x note with brief explanation.) Most stickers are straightforward and can be handled by Serials staff. If you have questions, consult your supervisor.
