This collection contains the latest, most current information and research related to serials publications for the benefit of librarians. It contains a wealth of information, coming directly from the NASIG Conference, the premier information‐gathering venue for everyone who works directly or indirectly in the purchase, collection development, maintenance, acquisitions, cataloging, and preservation of serials in libraries.
The book is divided into six sections. The first section is an introduction to the volume. Then the book follows the schedule of the conference itself, having presentations given at pre‐conference workshops, vision sessions, strategy sessions, tactics sessions, and the abstracts of the poster sessions. There are four pre‐conference articles, ranging from the basic and advanced serials cataloging workshop to mapping license language for electronic resource management to implementing institutional repositories. The vision sessions section contains three articles, centered around digitizing and electronic resources. The strategy sessions section contains 13 articles, from FRBR to ERM systems to scholarly communication issues. The tactics sessions area contains 15 articles, ranging from blogs and wikis, to workflow, to training, to course management systems, to open access. After the poster session abstracts, the conference registrants are all listed by last name and by affiliation.
For anyone working or interested in topics related to serials management in libraries, this is a must‐have collection.
