Book Description

This book, first published in 1990, reflects the partnership among those who create, produce, distribute, and manage serials information. Lively and informative, this volume addresses several highly important topics, including the process of scholarly communication, the differences among types of serials vendors and whether or not a library should consolidate orders with a single vendor, and organizational and institutional concerns about the current journal pricing crisis.
