---------- Forwarded message ---------- Date: Thu, 25 Jul 1996 07:09:01 -0700 From: Anita Sundaram Coleman <asc@UIUC.EDU> Subject: CALL FOR PAPERS Call For Papers Special Topic Issue of Serials Review Innovations in Serials A special issue of Serials Review, which is scheduled for publication in 1997, will be on the topic of Innovations in Serials. The guest editor for this special issue will be Anita Sundaram of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Innovation, whether as a response to the growth of knowledge, technological developments, or in an effort to meet information needs, has often been a factor in the continuing success of the serials model. Papers are solicited that report the results of original research or offer provocative new concepts about serials. Of particular relevance will be reports that examine serials from a panoramic view of libraries that includes: the growing popularity of the World Wide Web to establish intranets; the acceptance of distance learning in institutions of higher education, which has accelerated the need for remote delivery of library services; the increasing fiscal accountability of service units, such as academic libraries, which has yet again raised the specter of fees for special services; and lastly, the growing realization that new information technologies may be better utilized within a model of library organization that focuses on groups of clients and their needs through a consultative or alliance framework rather than the traditional reference desk services model. How are serials evolving? What are some of the new genres of serials? Are serials being organized in new ways to meet newly imperative information needs such as continuing education and training? How well do they do so? Are libraries involved in retrospective conversion projects of printed serials? What niche in the information needs hierarchy do such projects seek to fulfill? How are use and citation of electronic serials being monitored? What kinds of citation studies are being done in the WWW domain? Authors of research studies and theoretical standpoints that examine these and related questions are encouraged to submit their papers or contact the guest editor for further information. Four copies of manuscripts should be sent to: Anita Sundaram, P.O.
