Record-keeping Equipment -LIBRARY EQUIPMENT - LIBRARY MANAGEMENT

Record-keeping equipment in the library is mainly used for keeping records of periodicals-current issues as they are  received, and the back files of bound or otherwise preserved volumes. The choice of equipment depends  on the number of titles to be accommodated and the type and  range of users. These days, for larger collections, computerised systems are installed for handling the complete record. The most popular manual system is based on a unit card, one for each title and complete record is noted on them. The cards are filed in special transparent holders so that the cards overlap, leaving only the titles visible. Complete records of each title is available from the card-full title, publishers name and supppliers address, space for noting records of issues, note of complete holdings, and location of the holdings. It is desirable to have here subscription records-when ordered, when paid for, and when renewals are due. Equipment used for this purpose include kardex, linedex and loose leaf binders. Kardex (supplied by Remington Rand Co. in India) is used in periodicals control system. Since cards  are housed in protective pockets with transparent plastic tips, they remain clean, flat and do not get "dog-eared". Linedex is a metal cylindrical structure (30 cm height) revolving on ball bearing, and having a knob at the top and a number of metal panels these panels where perforated strips of paper bearing the title of the journal subscribed by the library with their location are displayed. A simple loose leaf binder which look like bank ledgers can also be used in place of Kardex.
