The Serials Librarian, the journal for continuing print and electronic resources affiliated with NASIG, is currently seeking content.

The Serials Librarian is an international journal covering all aspects of the management of serials and other continuing resources in any format - print, electronic, etc. - ranging from their publication, to their abstracting and indexing by commercial services, and their collection and processing by libraries.

The journal seeks both theoretical and practical content on all functions of continuing resources in libraries, including acquisitions, organization, cataloging and collection development. Articles reporting on projects related to serials management from around the world are welcome. Contributions from authors who represent commercial publishers
or subscription agents are also particularly welcomed in order to provide a broad spectrum of perspectives on serials. Authors may also contribute materials to the journal's columns which cover a wide range of subjects.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
•    Case studies reporting how institutions and organizations monitor and manage collections
•    Sustainable models for provision of journals content to users
•    The adaptations of libraries to the demands of e-resources
•    Open access and the future of the journal gatekeeping function
•    Standards in the commercial journal publishing industry
•    Cataloging practices
