        Sheesh, talk about a trial by fire! On the other hand, if I were
looking for a serials librarian, one who had that experience would be
high on my list.

        It's not necessarily a periodicals issue, but I recently had a
library science intern that I had going through all our electronic
resource licenses and making a chart of what we could do for each source
- ex: ILL allowed? Remote access allowed? Walk-in traffic allowed?
Reserves allowed? etc. Granted, now we negotiate for all that, but for
earlier licenses we didn't think about it. It took her some time to get
used to the language used and the differences in every contract, but she
seemed to think it was very useful.

        I'd also think about having your person deal with registering
all those individual titles that you get electronically as a result of
print, etc.
