Serial Subscription Information

Aggregation of serials in databases has created problems for the description and access to serial titles for libraries. NIOS has been studying the problem and has a description of the problem in the white paper The Exchange of Serials Subscription Information by Ed Jones.
Over thirty organizations were surveyed representing serials aggregators, library consortia, vendors of integrated library systems, STM publishers, and serials subscription agents. In parallel, NISO invited the library community-at-large to participate in a web-based survey on this matter.
