Migrating Print Serials Available Electronically

Major, Colleen M.; Thomas, Adrian Stanley

In this poster session, we reflected on our case study, which focused on a subset of currently received print periodicals housed in Columbia’s Butler Library. Butler’s Periodical Reading Room receives the largest number of print periodicals (over 1000) across our 17-library system. The presenters investigated titles from one subscription agent with a receiving location of Butler periodicals. We reviewed these titles for electronic availability; if the e-format can be supported by the libraries, and how many of the titles are still only available in print.
