Overview

The leading papers from the leading authorities in library serials

Over the past few years electronic journals have flourished to become an integral part of a modern library system. The challenges of licensing, financing, developing, managing, and delivering seamless and integrated access are topics of crucial importance.

The wide variety of stimulating topics include various aspects of electronic resources, financial issues facing the publication of serials, collaboration with vendors to assist in the development of new products and services, and the challenges and successes of librarians dealing with serial collection development and management.
