ABSTRACT

Managing the Transition from Print to Electronic Journals and Resources: A Guide for Library and Information Professionals is a collection of essays from the leading authorities on print-to-e-resource transition – from library institutions of all sizes and levels of funding. This book will help librarians and information professionals to design, implement, and manage solutions to effectively provide online access to e-journals and e-resources. Special topics discussed include reconfiguring acquisition models, electronic resource management (ERM) systems, skill sets necessary for e-resource management, efficiency enhancement, and current trends and initiatives in licensing. In addition, the wide range of articles included in Managing the Transition from Print to Electronic Journals and Resources: A Guide for Library and Information Professionals, will aid librarians in navigating the problems of changing formats, staffing issues, workflow approaches, and new and interrelated tools used to manage and provide access.
