Metro Census of Scientific and Technical Periodicals.
New York Metropolitan Reference and Research Library Agency, NY.
This subject guide, prepared for the METRO Sci-Tech Cooperation Discussion Group, is a bibliographic tool which will aid in the acquisition and use of scientific publications, particularly periodicals. A list of approximately two hundred periodical subject categories which cover science, technology, and medicine is given. The guide shows the number of current periodical titles which each of the 11 participating libraries subscribes to in each subject category. The purpose of the guide is to enable librarians at particular institutions to identify: (1) other libraries with similar subject emphases; (2) periodical resources at other institutions which may be needed at their institutions to support new programs for which they lack the resources; (3) specialized book collections in other libraries; and (4) strength and weaknesses in their own collections. It will also allow libraries to work out cooperative agreements for acquisition responsibilities and shared use. A list of participating libraries and an index of subject terms are included.
