Good morning,
This is my first post although I've been a lurker for several months and am 
running Koha as my circulation system (set up by Liblime). I played a bit 
with the serials portion of the program, but wasn't able to get too far. I 
am curious as to how libraries, particularly public ones are handling the 
adding and circulation of magazines. In my old system, I was able to use a 
generic barcode to check out issues of the same periodical (Newsweek, Time, 
People, etc.) and simply used the issue date in checkout. I'd like to keep 
the process as simple as possible since I'm a one pony outfit. Any and all 
suggestions/experiences gratefully welcomd.
Thank you.
