Serials Standing Committee
2012-2013 Annual Report

The TS-SIS Serials Standing Committee met in Boston on Tuesday, July 24, 2012, from 7:15-8:15 a.m. Part of the meeting was the Serials Roundtable discussion. There were reports from the Exchange of Duplicates Program and from the Project COUNTER Task Force. Much of the New Business discussed changes in submitting proposals for AALL 2013 in Seattle. The roundtable discussion focused on print journal cancellations and the methodologies libraries are using to determine what journals to keep in print and what to make available with electronic access only. Minutes for the meeting are available on the TS-SIS website.

The Exchange of Duplicates Program had 18 libraries participate during 2013, which raised $540.00. After $180.00 was paid to Wayne Schneider for his database support, that left $360.00 worth of income in support of TS-SIS scholarships and educational programs. Declining participation in the EOD Program may warrant evaluation to moving to an annual, rather than semi-annual exchange.

There was one TS-SIS sponsored educational program, 'E-Stats Collection for Your Non-Stacks Collection' (Program A4), which focuses on a serials related topic at the 2012 Annual Meeting in Boston. The 2013 Annual Meeting in Seattle features two program that are related to serials management: 'Making Sense of the Numbers: Understanding Vendor Statistics' (Program A1) and 'Fishbowl Fun!: A Closer Look at Four Key Licensing Provisions' (Program C1).
