The Serials Partnershipby Taylor and Francis, Joyce L. Ogburn (Editor)
Here is a forum in which scholars, publishers, vendors, and librarians share in discussing issues of common concern. The Serials Partnership: Teamwork, Technology, and Trends reflects the partnership existing among those who create, produce, distribute, and manage serials information. Lively and informative, this volume addresses several highly important topics, including the process of scholarly communication, CD-ROM in libraries, the differences among types of serials vendors and whether or not a library should consolidate orders with a single vendor, and organizational and institutional concerns about the current journal pricing crisis. Those concerned with managing budgets and newly available technologies will be particularly interested in the chapters on serials pricing issues and the impact of CD-ROM in libraries.
The Serials Partnership: Teamwork, Technology, and Trends is the proceedings of the Fourth Annual Conference of the North American Serials Interest Group (NASIG), which was held in June 1989.
