    Transforming Serials: The Revolution Continues (Parts I and II) will help you navigate the changing landscape in serials with a unique collection of fresh insights, new techniques and tools, and practical solutions. The book documents NASIG's 17th Annual Conference (2002, Williamsburg, Virginia), examining the ongoing effects technology has on scholarly communications and serial publications; the rapid changes in presentation of information and seamless interfaces; the evolving skills publishers, vendors and librarians need in dealing with information seekers; and the need for cooperation and communication among publishers, vendors and librarians. Topics addressed in the conference’s workshops and presentations included MARC21, e-journals, ILS conversion, AACR2, subsidized unmediated ordering (SUMO), aggregated databases, library and Internet standards, and Web-based tracking systems.

    Transforming Serials examines the future of information access and distribution, the future of digitized materials, and new roles for public service librarians. These conference proceedings of the North American Serials Interest Group, Inc. (NASIG) reflect the diverse interests of the serials community, promoting communication, information, and continuing education about serials and the broader issues of scholarly communication. Topics discussed in the book include:

    • the future of information access and distribution
    • the future of digitized materials
    • open URL and SFX open linking
