Licensing and Managing Electronic Resources Book Excerpt:

Libraries are licensing information resources in greater numbers then ever before.In order to negotiate and manage an ever-increasing number of licenses, libraries are either establishing Electronic Resource (ER) Librarian positions, or have been assigning these responsibilities to current staff. In both cases, few resources are available to acclimate new ER librarians to the diverse responsibilities associated with their position. An introduction and practical guide to the standard responsibilities ER librarians address daily. These include: knowing the rights libraries have as consumers of information under United States copyright law, understanding licensing terms and conditions, negotiating licenses to support the specific needs of the subscribing institution, and managing these resources once subscribed. Although every college and university is different, this book provides a framework within which the new ER librarian can learn the basics behind negotiating and managing their information resources effectively. Offers practical advice for the new electronic resources librarian Easy for the lay-person to understand Useful as a reference to specific terms, concepts, and issues related to electronic resource licensing

Electronic Resource Management Book Excerpt:

A significant shift is taking place in libraries, with the purchase of e-resources accounting for the bulk of materials spending. Electronic Resource Management makes the case that technical services workflows need to make a corresponding shift toward e-centric models and highlights the increasing variety of e-formats that are forcing new developments in the field. Six chapters cover key topics, including: technical services models, both past and emerging; staffing and workflow in electronic resource management; implementation and transformation of electronic resource management systems; the role of the electronic resource librarian in discovery systems, layers and tools; and academic library consortia and the evolving role of electronic resources and technology. The leading chapters include case studies from around the world, and a concluding chapter focuses on the disruptive nature of e-books and how broad adoption of this format is emerging as the tipping point towards holistic ‘resource management’, where separate technical services processes for print and electronic resources are finally merged. An emphasis on ‘access’ within the new technical services model Focuses on the unique attributes of electronic resource management that are distinct from traditional print serials workflows Covers consortia and how membership affects electronic resource management workflows, priorities, and technical processes
