Part of serials management sometimes includes routing serials to specific staff members before putting the item on the shelf for the public. This practice is common in special and academic libraries. The following video will walk you through creating and printing routing lists using the serials module in Koha. This video assumes that you have already set up at least one subscription in Koha, if you haven’t you might be interested in my tutorial video on setting up subscriptions.
