Electronic Resource Management in Libraries Research and Practice Book Review:

A pronounced move from print subscriptions to electronic resources in all types of libraries has fundamentally impacted the library and its users. With the influx of resources such as e-journals; e-books; index, abstract, and/or full-text databases; aggregated databases; and others, the shift to electronic resources is rapidly changing library operational and organizational procedures. Electronic Resource Management in Libraries: Research and Practice provides comprehensive coverage of the issues, methods, theories, and challenges connected with the provision of electronic resources in libraries, with emphasis on strategic planning, operational guidelines, and practices. This book primarily focuses on management practices of the life-cycle of commercially acquired electronic resources from selection and ordering to cataloging, Web presentation, user support, usage evaluation, and more.

Access Services in Libraries Book Review:

This book, first published in 1992, establishes a theoretical base for access services while also suggesting connections between theory and practice. It provides fresh thinking that re-examines previous writings in this area, presents new experimental designs and results, creates contemporary organizational solutions, and adopts innovative techniques for increasing users’ access to library materials within constrained budgets. Access services librarians, circulation department librarians, and library managers, especially those who are considering a reorganization that will include access services, will benefit from the philosophical and theoretical articles as well as practical advice on the design, delivery, and evaluation of responsive library services. Chapters in this invaluable book fill the gap in the literature about access services including theoretical descriptions of access services, current developing trends in access services, the historical development of the access services concept, practical studies related to common access services issues, and projections of future challenges.

Transforming Acquisitions and Collection Services Book Review:

This book explores ways in which libraries can reach new levels of service, quality, and efficiency while minimizing cost by collaborating in acquisitions. In consortial acquisitions, a number of libraries work together, usually in an existing library consortia, to leverage size to support acquisitions in each individual library. In cross-functional acquisitions, acquisitions collaborates to support other library functions. For the library acquisitions manager, technical services manager, or the library director, awareness of different options for effective consortial and cross-functional acquisitions allows for the optimization of staff and resources to reach goals. This work presents those options in the form of case studies as well as useful analysis of the benefits and challenges of each. By supporting each other’s acquisitions services in a consortium, libraries leverage size to get better prices, and share systems and expertise to maximize resources while minimizing costs. Within libraries, the acquisitions function can be combined with other library functions in a unit with more than one purpose, or acquisitions can develop a close working relationship with another unit to support their work. This book surveys practice at different libraries and at different library consortia, and presents a detailed description and analysis of a variety of practices for how acquisitions units support each other within a consortium, and how they work with other library units, specifically collection management, cataloging, interlibrary loan, and the digital repository, in the form of case studies. A final section of the book covers fundamentals of collaboration.

Open Access and the Library Book Review:

Libraries are places of learning and knowledge creation. Over the last two decades, digital technology—and the changes that came with it—have accelerated this transformation to a point where evolution starts to become a revolution. The wider Open Science movement, and Open Access in particular, is one of these changes and is already having a profound impact. Under the subscription model, the role of libraries was to buy or license content on behalf of their users and then act as gatekeepers to regulate access on behalf of rights holders. In a world where all research is open, the role of the library is shifting from licensing and disseminating to facilitating and supporting the publishing process itself. This requires a fundamental shift in terms of structures, tasks, and skills. It also changes the idea of a library’s collection. Under the subscription model, contemporary collections largely equal content bought from publishers. Under an open model, the collection is more likely to be the content created by the users of the library (researchers, staff, students, etc.), content that is now curated by the library. Instead of selecting external content, libraries have to understand the content created by their own users and help them to make it publicly available—be it through a local repository, payment of article processing charges, or through advice and guidance. Arguably, this is an overly simplified model that leaves aside special collections and other areas. Even so, it highlights the changes that research libraries are undergoing, changes that are likely to accelerate as a result of initiatives such as Plan S. This Special Issue investigates some of the changes in today’s library services that relate to open access.

Managing Electronic Resources Book Review:

As electronic resources evolve and mature, the need for effective management options is critical. The papers in this publication, a number of which were first presented at the 2003 and 2004 midwinter symposia on managing electronic resources, describe present conditions and prospective options and offer librarians practical suggestions for dealing with electronic resources. and an integral component of every search strategy. They also require more and more institutional resources. Consequently, all segments of the information community (librarians and library users, authors, publishers, vendors) are interested in finding ways to improve their management. The papers in this volume, many of which are based on presentations made at the 2003 and 2004 ALCTS midwinter symposia on managing electronic resources, examine the existing management environment, outline user expectations and offer suggestions for enhanced control of e-resources. Several invited papers provide fresh perspectives on this complex topic. The work contains practical suggestions for managing and facilitating access to the resources.

Library Data Book Review:

Numerical evidence is everywhere. And libraries are among the most abundant producers and storehouses of such evidence, as well as a key contact to numbers held elsewhere. But not all of this data is collected for the benefit of our users; some are integral to the functioning of the library itself. The papers in this collection run the gamut from library administrators addressing how to make data presentations appealing and effective, to an article on applying capital budgeting models to libraries, to a simple way to integrate Excel pivot tables with SQL stored procedures to create an amazingly elegant tool for vendor data analysis and visualization. They also cover specialized scenarios within, for example, the worlds of reference, collection development, serial acquisitions, web site design, and bibliographic instruction
