Midwinter - ALCTS SS Journals in Research Libraries DG Katy Ginanni 06 Jan 2003 17:22 UTC

Please make plans to attend the following meeting at Midwinter:

What: ALCTS SS Journals in Research Libraries Discussion Group
When: Saturday, January 25, 2003 from 9.30-11.00 a.m.
Where: Four Seasons Hotel, Adams Room
Topic: Serials Reviews Revisited

The topic will be "Serials Reviews Revisited."  We hope to have several
volunteers in the audience talk about serials review and/or cancellation
projects at their institutions -- what are the rationales for cancellations,
what was the workflow, the involvement of the user community, difficulties
encountered and techniques for overcoming them, etc.  Because of the current
situation of budget squeezes to accommodate electronic and paper formats,
and the fact that many colleges and universities -- especially
state-supported schools -- are in tight budget situations that could easily
continue into the next fiscal year, we hope that this topic will engender
useful discussion to any librarian facing these situations.
