Introduction to serials work for library technicians, Scott Millard

Caroline E. Dean


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.
