This program will focus on the world of serials – magazines and journals, print and electronic, individual titles and packages. This program will offer content for the novice to the expert serials professional as well as publishers and vendors.

The first half of the session will feature a panel of acquisition and collection development librarians who will share their insights on the library facing aspects of collection development and collection management from selection to renewals, format changes and to ultimately in some cases, non-renewal.

The second half of the session will address the external facing business aspects of serials purchasing. Topics will include how serials vendors are compensated, service charge is calculated and points to consider when issuing a bid, RFI or RFP. Service agreements and contracts and suggestions for a successful library vendor relationship will be addressed.
