Publisher Comments:

A tremendous shift is taking place in libraries towards purchasing e-resources, with the bulk of materials spending being allocated to e-resources acquisition. Many libraries combine print and e-serials in one unit, but the different workflows for the two formats, combined with the different responsibilities associated with the management of the two formats, have caused challenges for conceptualizing that all "serials" work together. This book tackles the central issues with the concepts of the access and management of electronic resources. It highlights the different kinds of e-resources, from e-serials and e-books to databases and digital collections, that continue to bring new developments to a field that requires different systems and skills than those needed for print resources.
