I'd like a service that notifies me when a new issue of a magazine of choice comes out. Is there such a service that explicitly provides such a service or an existing solution that can be configured to provide such a service? Ideally, this wouldn't mean subscribing to the magazine, just merely a notification that a new issue from the magazine is available.
We live in the UK, London: currently we subscribe to Harper's but are increasingly feeling like we just don't care about all the USA based content. And should be more interested in whats happening in the UK and Europe. Is there a good UK/Eurocentric equivalent that we could subscribe to? [more inside]
As a Progressive, aside from some stuff I hate read, the only conservative periodicals i read on any regular basis are First Things and the Economist (which, you know Cliche). Part of the problem is homophobia, but that's not enough of an excuse. So which blogs, websites, pod-casts, magazines, journals, tv shows, subreddits, zines, or mailers about neocons, fiscal cons, paelocons, libertarians, paleo-libertarians, social conservatives, or anything I have missed. I have read a lot of books, and I am more interested in a set of ongoing discussions, rather than something as solid as a monograph.

Cannot find periodicals in the library. I am trying to find two reports by A.M. Best: "Whole Life: With Dividend Histories" and "1997 Historical Supplement: 10- and 20-Year Whole Life Dividend Performance" as recommended in this LA Times article. Contrary to the article, my library does not appear to stock these. Are there any sources I am overlooking? [more inside]

I need to organize thousands of serials/periodicals which have been stored in boxes for the past 10 years, into a coherent, accessible collection. They go back 100 years. The goal is to place them, vertically, on shelves and make them available for research. Any ideas on how to classify them? The books in the collection are organized according to Dewey Decimal. Should I attempt to assign Dewey classification numbers to each "run" of a particular journal? How would I depict the Dewey number on an individual issue? I'm stumped! Maybe I should just go alphabetical. I'm a volunteer reference librarian who doesn't know anything about cataloging but I'm willing to learn to help this project. Thanks.
I got my hands on a near-complete series of film magazines (1970s-1990s) while doing an internship in college. They're great to have, but I need some extra cash right now. I looked on EBay, and I see a few people selling single issues of this magazine with some success. Is there a market for selling the lot and if so, how much can I expect to make? [more inside]
