The purpose of this conference is to answer the gauntlet offered at the
Seventh North Carolina Conference: to be able to have our patrons give
positive feedback of our worth. Serialists concerned with public service,
remote access, collection development, digitization, cataloging,
conversion, pricing models, licensing, metadata, mentoring, authentication
and hands on, serious serials webmastering will find solutions to make
themselves worthy.  Speakers with diverse expertise in the above mentioned
areas will discuss methods and procedures that serialists can utilize to
be worthwhile in all endeavors.
