This is the eleventh in the series of NAG’s Collection Development Seminars for Academic Libraries.  The Seminars are always popular, attracting around 100 acquisitions librarians to discuss current trends and developments.

  • Chris Harrison (Cambridge University Press): What happens when a publisher tries to publish a new format
