These lively proceedings from NASIG's inaugural conference address the status and problems of serials throughout the English speaking world. Experts address various aspects of serials librarianship--automation, standards, online public access catalogs and serials, pricing, and more. Whether one is interested in obtaining an excellent guide to automating serials departments, reading about discriminatory pricing of British scholarly journals for the North American market, or learning more about serials in the U.K. from the Chair of the United Kingdom Serials Group (UKSG), this stimulating book has something for every member of the serials information chain.
