Overview

Discover new methods for simplifying the serials management process in today’s electronic era

The dawn of the new millennium changed the field of information sciences forever as librarians and researchers alike were barraged with many new concepts and technologies, creating chaos and confusion. Serials in the Park is a breath of fresh air as expert speakers and consultants from the 18th Annual NASIG Conference (2003, Portland, Oregon) focus on the most significant trends and innovations for you and your patrons to use. From the Information Resource Matrix and serials aggregation to digital preservation and fund allocations, this important resource will help you successfully navigate the best path through unfamiliar territory.

With Serials in the Park, you’ll have a tangible source to turn to about several noteworthy issues, such as:

  • the rules, principles, and terminology underlying serials cataloging
  • the state of mergers in the serials publishing industry from the viewpoints of a librarian, a vendor, and a publisher
  • the CONSER recommended aggregator-neutral record for electronic serials cataloging
  • the integration of new library systems and how it affects copyright law
  • the barriers and challenges facing clients with disabilities when using electronic resources
  • developing, writing, and using written procedures manuals for technical services
  • the current state of print repositories
Along with presentations and workshops presented at the conference, this handy tool includes the hottest topics and the latest reports from reliable sources. With this book, you’ll also receive vital, practical advice on networking, cross-campus partnerships, training and education, and strategies for dealing with the transition from print to digital despite budget constraints. By showing you how to avoid pitfalls and dead ends, Serials in the Park helps you will improve efficiency, reduce the workload in public services, and enhance services to the users.
