A serial is a publication that is published continuously but does not fall under the definition of a periodical. This includes annual reports, proceedings of meetings of organizations and review publications. Review publications are particularly important because they provide comprehensive surveys on specific subjects. Most appear annually, summarizing the past year's progess with extensive literature references.

The United States Government Printing Office is an important source of information on all subjects. The Oviatt library is a partial depository for these publications, therefore we automatically receive many of the items. They are then either filed with the government documents in the Reference Room or Microform Room or, if their subject matter and length warrant it, they are cataloged and if electronic links to the electronic version are provided and if they are in print they are shelved in the stacks with the other books and periodicals.
