               Throwing Out the Bathwater, But Keeping the Baby:
     Managing Serials in an Age of Precarious Pricing and Burdened Budgets

The task of managing the acquisition of serials has been a challenge, at
best, in recent years.  Four innovatively-minded individuals will offer
unique perspectives and creative approaches towards meeting the challenges
of precarious pricing and burdened budgets including their strategies for
cancellation decisions and for selecting services to replace current ones.
Following their brief presentations, we will share what promises to be an
energetic discussion in which we wrestle with traditional values,
innovative solutions, and empty pockets.
