Developing and Managing Electronic Collections : The Essentials

Booklist


From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.

Johnson (author of Fundamentals of Collection Development and Management, 2009) turns her focus to electronic collections in this handy and up-to-date resource. Eight chapters cover the basics, including selecting items, evaluating collections, dealing with licensing issues, working with e-content suppliers, and budgeting. There are also discussions of digital-rights management, various devices, and what the future of digital collections might look like. A glossary and an index round out the book. This short volume is a must-read for librarians who are just starting to explore how electronic collections will affect their libraries, and it would be a solid choice for most librarians currently working with electronic collections.--Vnuk, Rebecca Copyright 2010 Booklist

Johnson (Fundamentals of Collection Development and Management) presents a guide to help libraries consider and address the issues involved in developing and managing their electronic collections. The book is not intended to be exhaustive in its coverage. Rather, it chooses key issues (the selection and evaluation of e-resources, order placement, licenses, budgeting) and provides advice and practical solutions for developing and managing the e-resources currently owned. "The rapid and constant changes in information technologies and the e-content marketplace" make it difficult to predict the future direction libraries should take, but Johnson does offer up some crucial concepts to consider. Easier and greater mobile device access to e-content as well as patron-driven acquisitions (which will impact academic libraries in particular) are just two of the trends examined. In addition to a glossary, there are "Suggested Readings" at the end of most chapters. VERDICT This book works well in conjunction with Marie R. Kennedy and Cheryl LaGuardia's Marketing Your Library's Electronic Resources: A How-To-Do-It Manual for Librarians. Selectors of e-content in all libraries will benefit from this book.-Susan E.

Developing and Managing Electronic Collections : The Essentials

CHOICE

Library collections are moving inexorably from physical formats to electronic ones. Johnson (past president of the Association for Library Collections and Technical Services, and author of numerous articles and several books on collection management) offers an excellent overview of the electronic collections environment for libraries. This work addresses the new issues brought to bear on collection development by the addition of electronic formats to the mix of different physical media historically available. Many of the skills needed for collection development of physical formats remain necessary for electronic collections; these include budgeting and financial skills, knowledge of and ability to conduct business with vendors, and selection and evaluation of content. In addition to these, electronic formats require complex licenses and negotiation thereof, electronic authentication, different methods of discovery and access, and close attention to copyright and legal requirements. Johnson discusses these topics thoroughly but concisely, and provides excellent bibliographical references for further reading. This work would be most useful to librarians who are already well informed about collection development and management for physical formats, since some of the basic skills, e.g., identifying users and their needs, are lightly addressed. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students through professionals/practitioners involved with collection development. M. Sylvia St. Mary's University
