Electronic Resource Management Excerpt :

A significant shift is taking place in libraries, with the purchase of e-resources accounting for the bulk of materials spending. Electronic Resource Management makes the case that technical services workflows need to make a corresponding shift toward e-centric models and highlights the increasing variety of e-formats that are forcing new developments in the field. Six chapters cover key topics, including: technical services models, both past and emerging; staffing and workflow in electronic resource management; implementation and transformation of electronic resource management systems; the role of the electronic resource librarian in discovery systems, layers and tools; and academic library consortia and the evolving role of electronic resources and technology. The leading chapters include case studies from around the world, and a concluding chapter focuses on the disruptive nature of e-books and how broad adoption of this format is emerging as the tipping point towards holistic ‘resource management’, where separate technical services processes for print and electronic resources are finally merged. An emphasis on ‘access’ within the new technical services model Focuses on the unique attributes of electronic resource management that are distinct from traditional print serials workflows Covers consortia and how membership affects electronic resource management workflows, priorities, and technical processes
