As electronic resources evolve and mature, the need for effective management options is critical. The papers in this publication, a number of which were first presented at the 2003 and 2004 midwinter symposia on managing electronic resources, describe present conditions and prospective options and offer librarians practical suggestions for dealing with electronic resources. and an integral component of every search strategy. They also require more and more institutional resources. Consequently, all segments of the information community (librarians and library users, authors, publishers, vendors) are interested in finding ways to improve their management. The papers in this volume, many of which are based on presentations made at the 2003 and 2004 ALCTS midwinter symposia on managing electronic resources, examine the existing management environment, outline user expectations and offer suggestions for enhanced control of e-resources. Several invited papers provide fresh perspectives on this complex topic. The work contains practical suggestions for managing and facilitating access to the resources.
