I do create item records during checkin. If the boxes have the volume and issue programmed as well as the cover date, it takes very few keystrokes plus the wanding of the bar code.
Once that is done you can use the item record for circulation and in house use, if you want those statistics.
The bar code makes an excellent label. Just be careful to place it near the center of the cover as patrons who are intent on stealing it will tear off it off if it is near the edge.
On-the-fly records did not work for us as there were too many people involved and too many errors that were made.
Hope this helps,

Subject: Circulating Periodicals in Millenium/INNOPAC
Hello! We are a public library and we are reviewing our circulation practices re: periodicals. Currently, we do not create item records for issues of periodicals that circulate. This is not working well for us and we are considering the various ways that we can circulate periodical issues in Millenium. Circ-on-the-fly is one option for us, though we feel it may create a significant amount of work. Another option we're considering is creating a "dummy item record/records" per serial title... In any case, there are the barcode issues... How do other libraries handle the circulation of periodicals using Millenium or INNOPAC? Thanks for sharing! Kind regards, Eeva
