What People Are Saying

Beth R. Bernhardt
Editors Maria Collins and Patrick Carr have done AN EXCELLENT JOB of identifying premier librarians in the field of electronic resources to collaborate on this book. . . . A WEALTH OF INFORMATION on how electronic resources are evolving and will continue to evolve in the future. I found the chapters on E-Journal Management Tools, Preservation, and Workflows for Managing E-Resources timely and extremely informative for librarians who have found themselves spending more of their time and energy on electronic resources. Both the novice and the experienced librarian will find this book INFORMATIVE AND ENGAGING. (Beth R. Bernhardt, MLS, Electronic Journals / Document Delivery Librarian, University of North Carolina at Greensboro)
Dalene Hawthorne
A VALUABLE RESOURCE FOR ANYONE INVOLVED IN MANAGING ELECTRONIC RESOURCES. It covers the gamut of electronic resources management issues, from acquisitions to access, selection to standards, and it includes information of use to both the experienced electronic resources manager and the electronic resources novice. In particular, the practical tables and checklists at the end of almost every chapter may assist library professionals who wish to make changes to processes or evaluate procedures or workflows. Librarians wishing to learn from the experiences of others will find this a valuable resource. . . . I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS RESOURCE TO ALL LIBRARIES that are considering expanding their electronic collections or converting their print collections to electronic ones. (Dalene Hawthorne, Assistant Professor, Head of Systems and Technical Services, Emporia State University Libraries and Archives)
