Yvette Diven, R.R. Bowker
Is there a secret formula for defining journal quality? This session will present several strategies that academic librarians are using to define their collections' depth and quality.
C. Electronic Resources Management
Andrew Pace, North Carolina State University
D. Beyond FRBR (Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records): Identifying a Serials Work in the Digital Age
Frieda Rosenberg, UNC-Chapel Hill
E. Making It Our Own: Creating a Customized Product from an "Out-of-the-Box" Link Resolver Software Package
The Reference and Serials/Technical Services departments at Francis A. Drexel Library have a long-standing history of cooperation and immediate reaction to any access problems that our patrons have concerning full-text retrieval of journal articles. The fact that we have many electronic resources available for our students is a very positive thing. The fact that a large number of these resources each present a different interface and method of full-text retrieval is a negative thing. Working together, we have gone well beyond the point of balance and students and their scholarship reap the benefit.
