The Value of Serials in Academic and Special Libraries

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Serials comprise the heart of many academic and special library collections, but like libraries in general, their value can be overlooked.  Both librarians and vendors share the challenge of defining, demonstrating, and communicating the impact of serials collections.  What difference does access to serials make in users’ lives?  What data do we have that provides evidence of that impact?  What data do we need to further demonstrate the value of serials?   And how do we communicate the value and impact of serials to users?  Join us for a presentation and Q&A session designed to inspire your own ideas for articulating the value of serials in academic and special libraries.
