Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The purpose of this manual is to give guidance and best practices on all things e-book management, from the decision to start a collection onward. Academic and public librarians have contributed to this three-part volume. Part 1, “E-books in Context,” gives a history of the format as well as insight into the e-book publishing industry. Part 2, “E-books in Detail,” provides librarians with detailed guides to selecting, budgeting, cataloging, and assessing e-book collections. An entire chapter is dedicated to e-books in public libraries, and another on licensing. Part 3, “E-books in Practice,” outlines six real-life scenarios, ranging from a secondary school’s transition to a completely electronic collection to a university library’s staff reorganization due to e-resource management. Sample MARC records and lists of questions for vendors are examples of what is available in this rich guide. An excellent resource appropriate for all librarians considering or managing e-book collections. --Emily Compton-Dzak
