Notes

Abstract: The Portal to Texas History (http://texashistory.unt.edu) and the UNT Digital Library (http://digital.library.unt.edu) contain more than 445,000 items collectively, hosted by the University of North Texas Libraries. These collections include a variety of serial publications such as newsletters, magazines, scholarly journals, annual reports, and yearbooks. Many of these serials are key resources for the user groups of both repositories. In this paper, we discuss the importance of serials within our collections, some of the challenges, the standards we use, and how we leverage metadata to facilitate access to serials for diverse global users.

This is the postprint version of an article forthcoming in The Serials Librarian.
