When the last volume is received:
When an order is cancelled, neither an invoice nor inventory are expected. While we may "cancel" an order with a vendor, in Alma, if we have received and paid for inventory, we will close, not cancel, the PO/POL.
When an order is closed, all inventory has been received and the order is complete.
Are you creating a new bibliographic record because of a title (or other) change?
Update the bibliographic and holdings records for the ceased title as appropriate. Create a new bibliographic record for the new title with holdings and inventory as appropriate
Advise email@example.com to close the PO/POL for the ceased title; and that a new PO/POL is required for the new title.
Draft Nov.2/22/sfm - Process to be confirmed
When a new record is required (See Metadata supervisor, Serials - Draft procedure sf/6/23):
1. Create a new bibliographic record, etc. for the new title. ; Update bib and holdings for prev title
2. If purchased, close the POL of the previous title; create a new POL for the new title > Assign inventory manually (holdings will already have been created). Associate the POL's
3. Populate the POL for the new title as it was populated in the previous title
For announcements about significant forthcoming changes: i.e. title change, format change, cessation:
1. In the bibliographic record, add a field 588 regarding the forthcoming change. Include |5 CaBViV.
Example: 588 ## Beginning with v. 58 (2023) publication will change title to Australian Journal of English Education. ‡5 CaBViV
The note will be deleted when the record is later updated with issue in hand.
2. In the POL Receiving Note, add: Beginning with [enumeration (chronology)] publication will change title to [New serial title]. Route last issue of v. [ ] to Metadata Supervisor (Serials)
From CONSER Editing Guide 2016 (2020 update):
Notes containing other administrative information about the record.
CONSER may also use field 588 in records for the following:
Occasionally, a participant receives information from publishers about future changes such as changes in country of publication, resumption of suspended publications, or the fact that the serial will be discontinued. The participant may use the 588 to convey this information to other users of the record. The OCLC symbol for the institution is given at the end of the note. At the time that the inputting institution or any other CONSER participant receives the issue reflecting the change, the record is updated and the note is removed.
To be issued in New York by Gordon & Breach beginning Jan. 1992. $5 DLC

Several projects to withdraw print serials based on JSTOR access and years of coverage have been carried out over the past 15-20 years. Historical documentation related to these past projects is located here: W:\LTEC\Serials\Weeding & Transfer Projects\JSTOR
As titles continue to be added to the various JSTOR collections, as of 2023, the libraries' current policy is to withdraw print serials when online access via JSTOR is confirmed, EXCEPT when the print serial has been marked for retention. Always check the bibliographic record for a 583 retention note before withdrawing serial items.
