Automated serials control update

Library Systems Newsletter [June 1985]

The Editors recently completed an update of the survey of automated serials control systems that was published as Vol. 20, No. 2 of Library Technology Reports (March/April 1984). The update will be published in LTR later this summer.

More than 60 vendors of turnkey systems, software, and serials subscription service were surveyed. Of these, 27 vendors offered support for the automation of serials control, or were planning to offer such support during 1985. Some vendors offer multiple systems and some systems are marketed by more than one vendor. As all of the systems and vendors have been mentioned in LSN during the past twelve months, only a listing of the available approaches to the automation of serials control is presented in this issue of LSN. The following coding is used on the list:

* also available as a single function system to support only serials control

[] system, serials capability or significant enhancement to serials module due to be released during 1985

+ system or service includes union listing capability
