Subject: [DIGLIB] Call for Papers: Serials & Continuing Resources in the



Serials & Continuing Resources in the Library:
New Frontiers in Access, Acquisition & Ownership

If the past is an indicator, current, emerging and yet-to-be Net and Web
features and functionalities will have a significant impact on the content
and publishing of serials and continuing resources, as well as on those
institutions that historically have assumed the role of maintaining and
assuring current and long-term access to these publications, notably
academic, public, research, and special libraries, among many other

To commemorate the publication of the 50th volume of _The Serials
Librarian_, submissions are invited that envision, review, or speculate on
topics falling into one or more of the following broad categories:

* The Future of Serials and Continuing Resources

* The Future Role and Place of Serials in Libraries

* The Future of Libraries in General.

The categories are intentionally broad to allow contributors to think
openly about any and all potential possibilities.

This special issue will be published as volume 51, numbers 1/2 of _The
Serials Librarian_.

NOTE: The deadline for submissions is November 1, 2005.

Authors should consult the 'Instructions for Authors' section of a recent
issue of _The Serials Librarian_ for detailed guidelines and style

Submissions should be sent via e-mail preferably as an attached MS Word
document to Gerry McKiernan, Associate Professor and Science and
Technology Librarian, Iowa State University Library, e-mail:
gerrymck at iastate.edu .
