The November issue of Serials is out now!
Also included are papers from the successful UKSG Measure for Measure Seminar, looking at measuring the impact (or more crucially the assessment and evaluation of the impact..) of articles published in journals. A usage measurement section wouldn't be complete without research from Tenopir and King, and "Perceptions of value and value beyond perceptions: measuring the quality and value of journal article readings" should be required reading for all.
In the General articles section, there is an interesting article (especially to those of you who read the THES article Friday about - inter alia - Librarians as Jedi Knights) on binning back-runs, and also managing e-resources, archiving and preservation and some keynote technical articles to bring you up to speed on Institutional Identifiers, ONIX Licensing terms for UK Academic institutions and Everything You Need to Know on Social Networking but were afraid to ask.
Update: If you don't read any of those articles, you HAVE to read our profile of Tirong arap Tanui, University Librarian at Moi University in Kenya - it is open access.. The link is here: http://uksg.metapress.com/openurl.asp?genre=article&issn=0953-0460&volume=20&issue=3&spage=242
