This informative volume gives you an up-close look at the increasingly important role that electronic serials play in the overall library collection, today and in the future. It addresses many of the themes, problems, and questions raised by this fast-evolving medium, including e-journal publishing issues, troubleshooting, and accreditation issues, as well as e-reserves, e-books, and more. In E-Serials Collection Management: Transitions, Trends, and Technicalities, library professionals from the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and Australia discuss these issues, the problems they have faced, and the solutions they have developed for them.
From the editor: “It is my belief that e-serials will continue to emerge as the key players in the library world, as the physical library gradually and inexorably gives way to the virtual library. As e-journals insinuate themselves throughout the infrastructures of libraries and expand their reach globally, the issues addressed in this book are becoming of concern to all librarians, not just the electronic resources and information technology specialists. Librarians all over the world are struggling with how to manage electronic serials and the issues associated with them. In this book, readers will see how library professionals just like themselves deal with electronic journals, their transitions, trends, and technicalities.”
