*Hello Fellow LM_NET'ers!
I need some help. 

I have a question about processing materials with multiple parts (like games, decks 
of cards, puzzles, etc.). Does anyone else *NOT* label each individual piece? I 
know standard practice has been to label each piece with the library name and 
sometimes also the call number. I realize the practical thing to do is to label 
each and every seperate piece, but a) it's incredibly time consuming b)often the 
only thing that works are sharpies, and they create an ugly scar on any item which 
sometimes makes item unusable or less fun to work with c) we can mark on the box 
(or put a note in the catalog) describing the pieces and listing them which can 
then be cross-matched upon check-in. 

If anyone else has simplified their processing procedure and decided not  (as a 
general rule) to mark each item, I'd be really grateful for your rationale and 

Please RSVP to me, and I'll collect a hit and post to the list.
