CFP: Acqusitions Issues in Serials Management (for Serials Librarian)

CFP: Acqusitions Issues in Serials Management (for Serials Librarian)

In my role as editor of a new column in The Serials Librarian entitled "Acquisitions Issues in Serials Management," I would like extend an invitation to any who might be interested in

The inaugural column, which explains its scope and offers many ideas for topics, can be read here:,2055

Among the topics suggested are the following:

* Price inflation
* Exponentially increasing complexity in the marketplace
* Open Access
* Big Deals
* Collection development in an online environment
* Serials work as public service
* The subscription model itself
* Vendor relations

From the Haworth Press catalog: "_The Serials Librarian_ is a peer-reviewed and widely subscribed-to, international journal devoted to the management of continuing resources that has been published by The Haworth Press, Inc. since 1976. The journal today is still a leader in the field, covering the many aspects of the management of serials and other types of continuing
resources in all formats, with emphasis upon electronic publications."

I look forward to hearing from any who would be interested in contributing to this new column. Please note that my contact information has changed since the column was published; my
correct contact info is below.
