Now in its second edition, Building An Electronic Resource Collection: A Practical Guide is a handbook especially for library and information professionals who need to make informed decisions in choosing how to incorporate electronic resources, and which ones should be selected for one's collection amidst the vast smorgasboard of choices. From an overview of the electronic resources landscape, to the nuts and bolts of what e-books and e-journals are and how to use them, to establishing a budget and evaluation process to determine which electronic resources to purchase, and much more, Building An Electronic Resource Collection is a superb starting point for library professionals of all backgrounds to familiarize themselves with the digital reading materials of the twenty-first century. Highly recommended for those involved in the selection process for any public or private library system.
