This essential journal devoted exclusively to serials management for librarians provides pertinent articles to help all serials professionals. With each quarterly issue, this highly regarded journal--with a truly international editorial board--presents a mix of practice, theory, and history in a readable format, keeping professionals informed of developments in all areas of serials work. Special attention is given to control methods, use of the computer, and costs. Journal articles regularly cover such areas as serials selection, acquisitions, and collection development; serials cancellation and weeding programs; bibliographic control of serials; serials staffing and departmental management; binding, storage, and claiming; serials cataloging; serials control systems; networking and cooperative programs; copyright and interlibrary loans; relationships with serials agencies and publishers; serials reference work and circulation; secondary storage of serials; and computerization problems. Each issue also features the stimulating columns by Joe Morehead on specialized government serials and Beverly Geer and Beatrice L. Caraway on the latest in serials news. The Serials Librarian also occasionally publishes entire issues devoted to a topic of particular concern to professionals.
