The vital issues of concern to serials librarians are all addressed in this mammoth compendium. The proceedings of the fifteenth conference of the North American Serials Interest Group, Inc., Making Waves: New Serials Landscapes in a Sea of Change offers up-to-date information and fresh ideas on issues from budgets to preservation.

Making Waves addresses the traditional concerns of librarians in innovative ways.

  • preserving, cataloging, and accessing digital materials
  • understanding the MARC format for holdings data
  • how the Digital Millennium Copyright Act affects libraries
  • reports on specific test projects such as BioOne, the Open Archives Project, and PubMed Central
  • the technical services departmental Web page
  • employing MS Access database management software in serials management
  • electronic journal cataloging conundrums
  • reshaping roles in acquisitions
  • alternative careers for the serialist . . . and much more!
