Complex publication patterns offer Voyager serials users new degrees of latitude in implementing prediction patterns that fit actual publication and/or receipt cycles. Yet, observation of usage among CARLI libraries appears relatively low. The workings of complex patterns do have a steeper learning curve than standard publication patterns, deriving from the different terminology and the need for libraries to do the math. The presenters will work to demystify the theory and practice of developing complex patterns, and they will offer examples why adoption of complex patterns will benefit libraries.
