This book covers the five points of the e-resources lifecycle in a readable and accessible manner, providing valuable information that is applicable to real-world situations. Each of the working chapters covers one of the five lifecycle points (Acquisitions, Access, Administration, Support, and Evaluation), and supplies suggested readings and thought-provoking questions. Additionally, there are two chapters that guide readers from learning about the work to actually doing it.

Electronics Resources Management in the Academic Library: A Professional Guide is full of practical assignments that teachers of e-resources management will appreciate. This guide will also be immensely beneficial to library and information science school students and independent learners who need immediate, practical knowledge from the field to get them started in a position which requires them to manage electronic resources.
