Cumulative index work and loose issue shelving work, Other Management

Cumulative Index Work:

As the name suggests, it pertains to noting by entering down the announcement of cumulative index followed by entering  the receipt of cumulative index on the Classified Card of the Three Card System. 

Rounding Off Work:

Rounding Off Work consists of sending reminders to the publisher / supplier of non-receipt of current / back issues, title page, contents or index as well as bringing to their notice supply of defective and duplicate issues of periodicals. Another aspect of rounding off work relates to acknowledging  to the donors the receipt of periodicals supplied free. 

Periodical Publication Bill Passing Work:

This concerns calling for scrutiny, verifying bills, certifying and transmitting the bills to the Accounting Section for payment. 

Loose issue shelving Work:

Loose issue shelving work involves arranging the new issues of periodicals registered in a classified sequence followed by displaying them on the display table/rack. As and when new issues are displayed, the old issues are shelved. While the procedures discussed in Section relate to Current Volumes, the jobs relating to the ordering and receiving of back volumes of periodicals are similar in most respects to the job of ordering and receiving books discussed in Unit 7, Section 7.4 and its sub-divisions. In conclusion, it may be stated that acquisition of periodicals directly from publishers is more satisfactory and preferable to getting them through local agents in spite of the additional work and, perhaps, cost involved. This is because one can be sure of having complete volumes of periodicals  subscribed. Here, it is assumed that the library staff would be more efficient than  the local agents in ensuring receipt of all issues of all periodicals.
