Snap, crackle and ultimately pop? The future for serials

Author:

Colin Steele

Abstract

This paper had as its brief, for the concluding session of the 2005 UKSG conference, to overview issues within the conference, and hopefully within an entertaining framework. Readers of this article should therefore also refer to the UKSG web site at http://www.uksg.org/events/previous.asp#2005conf for my PowerPoint presen tation which contains a significant amount of pictorial material. Topics covered include the recurring historical nature of the 'serial crisis', the open access movement, the costs of serials at both the 'front end' and 'back end', institutional repositories and the relationship of the academic book in elec tronic form to serial trends.
