Bowker Launches New Serials Management System

R.R. Bowker has announced the introduction of the Ulrich's Serials Analysis System, a new management tool for library professionals who need to identify, analyze, evaluate, and report on their libraries' print and electronic serials holdings. The Ulrich's Serials Analysis System brings together the library's serials holdings and the multiple layers of subject coverage and content from the Ulrich's Periodicals Directory database and Bowker's ulrichsweb.com.

Using a universe of serials published worldwide as well as a core collection of must-have journals, the Ulrich's Serials Analysis System gives collection managers, serials and acquisitions librarians, subject specialists, and others an in-depth look at their own holdings, the serials resources the library does not hold, and the offerings of top serials publishers. The new system provides librarians with an integrated, comparative analysis of the library's print and electronic serials across more than 900 subject classifications and against key industry benchmarks. These same criteria are applied to publishers' collections, allowing librarians to evaluate those offerings.

Users of the new system have the ability to generate a series of library- and publisher-specific reports and view bibliographic details for individual titles--including prices, electronic availability, and reviews--in ulrichsweb.com. Customized reports may be printed or downloaded for anyone needing information on the scope and depth of the library's collection.
