Call for submissions: Acquisitions Issue in Serials Management Rick Anderson 14 Nov 2007 15:24 UTC

In my role as editor of a new column in _The Serials Librarian_ entitled
"Acquisitions Issues in Serials Management," I would like extend an
invitation to any who might be interested in contributing.

The inaugural column, which explains its scope and offers many ideas for
topics, can be read here:,2055

Among the topics suggested are the following:

* Price inflation
* Exponentially increasing complexity in the marketplace
* Open Access
* Big Deals
* Collection development in an online environment
* Serials work as public service
* The subscription model itself
* Vendor relations

>From the Haworth Press catalog: "_The Serials Librarian_ is a
peer-reviewed and widely subscribed-to, international journal devoted to
the management of continuing resources that has been published by The
Haworth Press, Inc. since 1976. The journal today is still a leader in
the field, covering the many aspects of the management of serials and
other types of continuing resources in all formats, with emphasis upon
electronic publications."

I look forward to hearing from any who would be interested in
contributing to this new column.  Please note that my contact
information has changed since the column was published; my correct
contact info is below.
