Good morning all,

Happy Monday.  Here's a conundrum to start off your week...

I'm a lone arranger with a large number of books within my archives.  I know that ASpace is not designed to handle books (but it can) and I have no other library catalog at my disposal.  Many of the books could be put within existing collections (defined as artificial assemblages).  My thought is to designate the last series in the collection as "books" and add the titles under that series record.

Has anyone done anything similar?  Thoughts? Concerns? Problems you've encountered?

Will appreciate any and all feedback on or off list.

MANY thanks!
