Service Desk Manual: How to check out: magazines, journals and newspapers

How to check out magazines, journals and newspapers:

Step by step instructions with photos on how to check out a magazine or journal (referred to in libraries as periodicals because they are published periodically):

1. A library patron brings the periodical to you for check out.                    2. Open the "Periodicals Checkout" icon on the computer.     


3. Add the patron name, library card barcode number, title and volume/issue/date into the form. In order to complete the next column in the spreadsheet, continue to the next step.

4. Add a library barcode to the back cover of the periodical from the label dispenser.  


5. Enter the library barcode information that you added onto the periodical into the spreadsheet.

6. Desensitize the periodical and it is good to go home with the library patron!


These will be entered into the sierra catalog by a library supervisor.
