An Investigation of Selective College and University Libraries' Serial Arrangement.
Kesler, Elizabeth Gates; Teborek, Gay
Data from a survey on serials arrangement procedures and policies at academic libraries was used by the University of Rhode Island (URI) Library in changing current serials policies. Ten libraries, four of which have similar serial holdings and user populations to URI, responded to a questionnaire. Information was obtained on classification versus alphabetization of serials, and missing issues, cataloging, and title change procedures. Based on analysis of this information, recommendations were made for the URI Library concerning: (1) annual publications; (2) bound and unbound serials; (3) newspapers; (4) public catalog entries; (5) computer printouts; (6) incomplete volumes; and (7) title changes. The questionnaire is appended. (KP)
