Since its inception in 1969 by Bill Katz, the goal of Magazines for Libraries (MFL) has been to help librarians with their selection of magazines and journals. The recently-added freely accessible online component of Magazines for Libraries, Magazines for Libraries Update (MFL Update; http://www.proquest.com/blog/mfl/), aims to cover new journals that may become part of the core titles in a Magazines for Libraries chapter, as well as niche and open access titles that may not be a core title for most libraries, but that may serve essential needs in some libraries. The objective for this session is to have a dialogue among the current MFL editor and attendees about journal collections, the role open access journals play in library collections, and how MFL and MFL Updates can provide the optimal information needed for librarians to build collections in 2015 and beyond.
