The development of the electronic library -- from internal economic, management, and training issues to technical concerns and implementation strategies -- is one of the key problems facing today's information profession. At all levels there are many issues that challenge traditional notions of library management structure.

Addressing the practical needs of librarians grappling with the changes wrought by technology, sections are devoted to the general nature of the electronic library, managing EIS at the campus level, management structures for electronic libraries, and resourcing and budgeting issues.

Separate chapters also focus on specific services and functions, including reference and information systems, the "just in time" library, user training, technical services, and the full array of electronic services. Each discussion includes a current overview of the main topic bolstered by recent examples of practice and detailed case studies.
