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 organizations.

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 has been extended to December 1, 2005.

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

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 .

If you plan or intend to prepare a submission for this special issue, please contact me prior to the deadline.
