I don't think there is one right way to arrange job duties. Much of
it is dependent on how many other staff you have and what their
skills are. In my library, for example, the Reference librarians
handle the eTOC services. The only thing I would advise is that any
serials librarian should some role in managing electronic serials,
rather than letting everything electronic be handled by someone else.
It's part of keeping up with what's going on.
