This symposium will give participants the opportunity to become familiar
with current electronic journal archiving models and discuss
future-oriented collection development priorities and strategies for
individual, organizational, consortia, and national libraries. The program
will include presentations by the experts on their archiving models, input
from reaction panel members on the impact, feasibility, and interest level
in these models for various types of libraries, and breakout sessions that
allow participants to discuss existing archiving models and future
archiving priorities and standards.
