About this title


An examination of the process libraries should employ when buying serials. Beginning with an overview of the publishing environment, the book analyses the difference between in-house subscription management and the services offered by agencies and concludes with a look at library-vendor relations.

From Library Journal:

" Buying Serials had its origins in our belief that information is power," say Basch and McQueen, who have written a practical and valuable manual for all parties involved in serials, i.e., library personnel, students, faculty, vendors, and publishers. Their aim is to enable librarians to maximize their return on the serials investment, which may often consume as much as 75 percent of library materials budgets. Following an overview of the serials publishing world, the authors discuss serial selection, subscription agency analysis, automated services, and vendor-library relations. Especially interesting is their unique insider's view of the role subscription agencies play in serials acquisitions. Finally, the appendix is a treasure containing a summary of the range of automated services and products offered by vendors and detailed information on the capabilities of the different systems.
