    Thought-provoking perspectives from experts in library serials!

    Roaring Into Our 20’s: NASIG 2005 presents leading authorities in library serials providing their unique perspectives on the challenges of serials collection development and management, as well as their promising visions for the future. Marshall Keys, Regina Romano Reynolds, Steve Shadle, Carol Hixson, Paul Weiss, and a host of other top experts in serials gathered as presenters for the milestone twentieth anniversary conference of the North American Serials Interest Group (NASIG) held in May 2005 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The latest issues and thought-provoking strategies are explored, giving librarians of all types a firm grasp of the newest products and most effective tactics to best manage serials today—and tomorrow.

    The conference itself consisted of preconference programs, vision sessions, strategy sessions, and tactics sessions not only to provide goals for the future, but also to examine ways to help librarians become more effective in handling the constantly evolving challenges of serial management. Roaring Into Our 20’s: NASIG 2005 discusses a broad selection of topics of crucial interest, including electronic resources, vendors, financial issues, the development of new products and services and other topics exploring the bright and challenging future of library serials. Several chapters include tables and figures to enhance the clarity of ideas.
