SNRG 2008 - Sugar Coated Serials - Vermont State Colleges

Serials Display:

We need to ask ourselves:

What information do patrons want to see?
What info do reference librarians want to see?
What info do circ and ill staff need to see?

No one liked serial holdings displays - they were confusing and difficult to interpret, and not arranged in an easily interpreted sequence.  Because the group is a consortium of 4 colleges, they needed to speak a common language and use a common style. Numbering system and notes were standardized. They checked with reference librarians and confirmed that this would work. The group showed examples of their collaborative decisions.

I won the door prize - pancake mix and Vermont maple syrup!
