The times, they are a-changin'! Serials control continues to be both challenging and complex. Librarians and their patrons can access thousands of journals in a variety of formats and from a variety of starting points. The challenge for Albertsons Library at Boise State University was to meet the needs of the patrons who want only one starting point to access the full-text articles they need. This article describes the process of finding a commercial solution to the problem of one-stop serials management and access.
