Policy for Missing and Lost Serials and Bound Periodicals

Discard duplicate copies of serials/bound periodicals unless there is a compelling reason to retain them.

If a serial issue or a bound volume of a periodical is found to be missing, it will be searched three times by Circulation. If the item is not found after three searches conducted over the period of at least one year, stacks management will notify us to withdraw the item.

  • If an item is permanently missing, it is withdrawn: delete the item record and review the holdings statement (866) to add $z Incomplete holdings if necessary.
  • If the entire run of a bound periodical is withdrawn: suppress or delete the bibliographic record in Aleph (depending), delete the local holdings record in Connexion and remove our holdings symbol from the bib record.
