Author:

Hazel Woodward

Abstract

Electronic information and the growth of networks are beginning to have a major impact upon the process of scholarly communication and the development and management of library serial collections. This paper examines the various types of electronic serials currently available and discusses issues relating to storage, access, selection, acquisition, bibliographical control, training and resource allocation. Discussion of current alerting and document supply services (CASIAS) highlights the impact such services are having on library serial holdings and collections.
