Subject: Serials Departments
To Serials Dept. Heads,
An upcoming retirement is giving me the opportunity to re-think the
arrangement of our serials department. We are currently split into two
sections: Periodicals (defined as received more often than once a year) and
Continuations (received annually or less often; also includes sets). This
made perfect sense when we had a manual system with separate card files,
but now that we are automated it doesn't seem so necessary. My question
is: what other arrangements have libraries tried, and how do they work?
How are staff responsiblities divided?
Any input would be most appreciated!
Asst. Tech. Services Librarian for Serials
