TS-SIS Serials Standing Committee Meeting & Roundtable

Good Afternoon, TS-SIS Members,
Everyone involved with serials is invited to attend the TS-SIS Serials Standing Committee Meeting & Roundtable, next Tuesday, July 24, from 7:15am-8:15am in the Sheraton-Independence Ballroom West. There will be coffee, as well as light continental breakfast-like refreshments, to help you get the last day of the conference started right.

The Serials Standing Committee Meeting & Roundtable gives you an opportunity to meet and network with other law librarians interested in serials issues. For this year's roundtable we are going to talk about electronic journal access, legacy print serials, and how the ongoing switch to electronic serials continues to affect our workflow and staffing. Appended below is the agenda that was distributed in an earlier email as well.

I hope you will be able to attend! You can add it to your AALL schedule at the following link:
