Summary: The advent of electronic scholarship brings new opportunities to authorship, publishing and librarianship. However, like all new paradigms, it brings concomitant challenges, including how to maintain access to electronic information through time, also known as digital archiving or electronic archiving. Electronic archiving can involve the archiving of discrete items, such as books, that have been digitized, the archiving of items that were “born digital” with no print counterparts, and the archiving of serial publications that have both print and electronic formats, which are not always equivalent. This paper discusses the policies, problems, questions, and concerns of archiving serial publications that have both print and electronic versions.
