An Overview

In terms of currency, there is a great divide in library resources: periodicals and books. As the Library spends nearly one-third of its budget on current literature, Serials Control System cannot be coupled with the General Acquisition. This takes care of the Current/Retrospective Collection of Periodical Literature. It monitors the incoming issues of the journals and claims pending issues. Creation of the Serials Database as per ISDS makes it easy for exchange of records and preparation of union catalogue. Provides online access to the retrospective collection. It does other routines involved in the Acquisition. This self-contained module would prove to be a handy tool to control the valuable information resources for the immediate use of the research scholars.
