Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Electronic-resource management is more than selecting databases and tracking patron-usage stats. Edited by the director of technical services and electronic resources for Murray State University, in Kentucky, this volume will help those working with electronic resources in any type of library. Eight chapters address processes associated with managing electronic collections. Coverage includes the basics, economic issues, acquisition, licensing, staffing, accessibility, and the future. Three appendixes offer excerpts of historical and current copyright law, COUNTER code of practice for books and reference works, and COUNTER code of practice for journals and databases. The clear writing will help the most novice electronic-resources librarian, while the details and references will assist the more advanced worker in gaining additional information. --Sara Marcus
