Michael Norman, head of serials cataloging at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) library, describes his library’s development of an integrated management system for serials, the Online Research Resources (ORR). The ORR was designed to draw together and deliver to the public a wide range of information related to the library's serial holdings that previously could only be obtained by consulting a number of sources. With a single search, UIUC patrons can now consult the ORR for serials information such as variant titles, online availability, subject categories, print summary statements, ISI impact factor, where the title is indexed, and whether it is peer reviewed-an innovation sorely needed and highly welcomed by librarians and patrons alike.
