Re: Questions to veteran serialists Lisa A. Ladd 05 Mar 2009 15:04 UTC

Hi Marilyn,

For me, serials work creates an environment that is constantly changing, challenging, and fun.  Title changes, coverage, claims, marketing, making room for growth, it seems there is always something to do.  Assessment seems to be the latest trend, are we getting the most bang for our buck, and then of course access too.  At times I feel like a detective as I try and hunt down that elusive citation, or try and obtain that obscure geological survey from some far flung area of the globe.  As a twenty year veteran, I too have seen a move from kardexes and print catalogs to a digital environment in a few short years.

Great question! Lisa
