Serials

The Serials unit is responsible for acquiring and processing serials in all formats in a timely and accurate manner to facilitate their use by the UBC community.

The unit processes print and electronic resource orders, invoices, renewals and cancellations, receiving of print periodicals, standing orders, continuations and microforms for all branches except Law and Government Publications.  Under the direction of Serials unit supervisors, staff at UBC Okanagan and the BioMedical Branch perform print serials check-in and claiming functions for their own locations.  Staff are committed to transitioning subscriptions from print to online format whenever possible.

Serials cataloguing is performed within the unit as is system-wide holdings maintenance and collections consolidation.

The serial binding program is coordinated through the unit, in collaboration with the Preservation team.
