Whitewater rafting is an act of cooperation between you, your guide, your raftmates and mainly the river. Successful e-journal management is no different. Cooperation and understanding among many players are necessary to fulfill user needs. This preconference will allow participants to hear from publishers, subscription agents, PAMS (like Serials Solutions), electronic resource management system providers, platform providers and librarians in an effort to identify best practices to successfully navigate the intricacies of electronic journals.

Speakers: Jeff Aipperspach, Serials Solutions; Chris Beckett, Atypon; Susan Davis, University at Buffalo; Deberah England, Wright State University; Tina Feick, Harrassowitz; Kim Steinle, Duke University Press

1 1/2 Day Session: Wednesday June 3, 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m., Thursday June 4,

The Electronic Serials Cataloging Workshop, developed by the Serials Cooperative Cataloging Training Program (SCCTP) under the CONSER Program, is designed as a hands-on training course for cataloging electronic serials distributed through the Web. This workshop is based on Anglo-American Cataloging Rules (AACR), 2nd edition, including the 2001 amendments and the revised edition published in 2002. It incorporates key revisions of chapter 9, “Electronic Resources” and chapter 12 “Continuing Resources” that apply to electronic serials, but is not a comprehensive course on serials cataloging. The course is also based on Library of Congress Rule Interpretations, the MARC21 format, and CONSER-specific policies and practices set forth in the CONSER Cataloging Manual and CONSER Editing Guide. The curriculum includes six lessons: Introduction; Cataloging an online serial; Aggregations and packages; Online versions; Changes that affect cataloging; and Case studies. Audience: The course is designed for those who have previous serials cataloging experience.

Speakers: Linda Geisler and Esther Simpson, Library of Congress

Half-Day Session: Thursday, June 4, 9:00 a.m.-100 p.m.

Speakers: Selden Lamoureux, North Carolina State University Libraries; Clint Chamberlain , University of Texas
