Subject: [SERIALST] Serials Assistant -- Job Description?



What all does a staff member in Serials do at your library?  I'm especially interested in any non-financial tasks.   I'm also interested in any tasks that you *wished* were done but currently aren't (for whatever reason).


Additionally, are there any tasks that a cataloguer (a librarian) would normally do but that now a staff member does?  


I'd appreciate any input. 



Thank you.
