Serial Record option for libraries not barcoding journal issues

4

There should be an option to have a serial record instead of an item record for libraries that do not barcode serial issues. The serial record would show scope, location, availability and issues held.

Would it be possible to display serials in our scope and make the item opac invisable in the item record?

There currently exists the functionality to create serials records with issuances without adding copy records with one caveat.  You do need one copy record for the record to appear in your scope but you do not need to create a copy record for every issue received.  Unfortunately, this also means you have to have one copy record visible also.  Under the current design, you could not make the copy record OPAC invisible and still have the record display in your scope.
