Overview

Build and maintain an effective electronic reserve system!

Electronic Reserve: A Manual and Guide for Library Staff Members is the comprehensive professional resource you need to create commonsense policies and procedures that ensure effective electronic reserve service in your academic library. This hands-on, how-to guide walks you through the start-up process for implementing an electronic reserve system, presenting general guidelines and practices for designing and staffing your library. The book also examines fair use of copyrighted materials, explaining complex legal issues in language that you—and your staff—can easily understand and apply.

Electronic Reserve: A Manual and Guide for Library Staff Members examines the critical issues of everyday e-resource management, including planning, staffing, training, publicity, assessment and evaluation, workflow, choosing the right software (and hardware), defining faculty control over materials, faculty copyright compliance, and implementing changes based on data analysis. This unique mix of practical details and specific examples also includes samples of the type of documentation you’ll need to start and maintain successful e-resource management, including letters, forms, checklists, and flowcharts, and provides tables and figures for copyright and fair use, an extensive glossary, and bibliographical references.

Electronic Reserve: A Manual and Guide for Library Staff Members has the answers to the frequently asked questions you’ll get from students, such as:

  • How do I access the materials I need?
  • Are all readings available electronically?
  • What kind of hardware and software do I need?
  • Why do I need a password to view some reserve items?

    and from faculty, including:
  • How do I submit my materials?
  • Am I responsible for obtaining copyright permission?
  • What is “public domain?”
  • Can I use an article I wrote for publication?
  • Would anyone actually sue me for copyright infringement?
Electronic Reserve: A Manual and Guide for Library Staff Members is the resource you need to provide maximum service to library staff members who work with electronic reserves, faculty who submit materials, and students who use those materials.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This work by the chair of access services and associate university librarian at the University of Florida-Gainesville very much resembles a training manual written for library staff involved in the daily operations of electronic reserves. Beginning with an overview of the planning process for an e-reserves program and following with copyright and fair use issues, nearly half the book is devoted to frequently asked questions from students and faculty, sample forms, policies, checklists, instructions to faculty, step-by-step instructions for scanning, cropping, and uploading electronic files, and the like. In comparison, Managing Electronic Reserves, edited by ACRL Electronics Reserve Discussion Group founder Jeff Rosedale, offers a more thoughtful, less narrow approach. The Rosedale volume is recommended as the top-priority purchase for libraries, with Driscoll as a secondary choice.

What People are Saying About This

June L. DeWeese
“I WISH THIS MANUAL HAD EXISTED FOUR YEARS AGO when we were contemplating purchasing an electronic reserves system for the university library where I work. . . . Or two years ago when we were setting up all of our policies, procedures, and training documentation. . . . THIS IS AN EXCELLENT PUBLICATION and will be an often-consulted resource for those just starting to provide an electronic reserves system and those who have one set up but want to review and revisit our policies and procedures to be certain that we have covered everything efficiently and effectively.”
MLS, Head of Access Services, Ellis Library, University of Missouri - Columbia
Rebecca Martin
“If you are planning to launch an electronic reserve service in your library, Lori Driscoll has written A MANUAL THAT NOT ONLY READS WELL BUT ALSO PUTS THE FORMS YOU NEED RIGHT AT YOUR FINGERTIPS—sample policies, guidelines, checklists, letters, and surveys. There is also a glossary and FAQ for potential faculty and student inquiries. DO YOUR STAFF A FAVOR AND ADD THIS TITLE TO THE WORKING COLLECTION.”
MLIS, Head of Access Services, Northern Illinois University Libraries
