Learning about standards is important throughout the serials community. A multitude of organizations and standards affect all aspects of serials. Determining which standard applies in a given situation and deciding where to obtain that standard can be difficult tasks.
To begin to address this issue, the ALCTS Serials Standards Committee (SSC) has created this document with the goal of providing a single source for standards relating to serials. Updates will be made to individual sections as standards are created or modified.
Increasing awareness of existing standards will benefit the entire serials community. Please consider helping SSC in this effort. If you do not find a standard or believe you have found an error please contact the current SSC chair.
