Introduction to serials work for library technicians, Scott Millard

  • Caroline E. Dean Electronic Resources Librarian, Collections Development Department, University of Cape Town Libraries


The twelve chapters of this indexed volume cover the typical life cycle of a serial, touching on most issues that people who work with serials in libraries need to know. After an Introduction to Serials Work, the chapters cover acquisitions, ordering, receipt and check-in, cataloguing, processing and shelving, claims, binding, renewals, cessations, automation, and a look at new technology. Each chapter begins with an Objective that serves as a good summary of the aim of the chapter: The volume concludes with a useful glossary of terms that were used in the work and a bibliography.
