Old, but clearly written and still quite useful:
1. Serials management : ‡b a practical guide / ‡c Chiou-sen Dora Che (ALA, 1995)
Management of serials in libraries / ‡c Thomas E. Nisonger. (1998, Libraries Unlimited)
2. Electronic journals access and management by Wayne Jones, Routledge, 2009
3. Prevailing and best practices in electronic & print serials management. Primary Research Group, 2006.
This is the tip of the information chain!
And of course, we hope you belong to NASIG and ALA Continuing Resources Section as viabile serials groups.

Hi Carrie, There is a journal "The Serials Librarian" in print and online. I
receive it in my google reader through RSS.
Good luck on the new job.

Subject: [SERIALST] New to serials


I am new to serials management and am looking for current books or sites
that would make a good introduction to the subject. I will be managing print
and electronic, cataloging print, updating our OCLC holdings, and our A_Z
list. Any suggests welcome.
