In response to an inquiry from a Reference librarian, we have been looking into making item records for the Oregonian. Per Kathy Varbel, microfilm is circulated to ILL patrons and barcoded at the time it is sent out. We have made a decision to go ahead and barcode the Oregonian microfilm as we create the item records.
At this time we don't routinely barcode microfilm, but we are making an exception in this case, and under some circumstances may make exceptions in the future.
