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

"Computers have been a major resource in libraries for many years. From the first OPAC terminal to librarian-assisted DIALOG searching, the role of computers in service to library patrons has come a long way. Today, library public computers serve many different needs of patrons. Public computers are OPACs; gateways to databases, e-books, e-journals, video and audio content; information resources about the library and its many services; e-mail kiosks; and a destination where patrons find numerous software applications. All of these resources are often loaded on each public computer, and patrons flock to them. These computers are fully networked and often configured for, or attached to, numerous peripherals. This public computing environment presents a wide range of challenges to academic and research library staff and administrators. In an environment that demands more of the resources, the infrastructure, and the staff who work to keep public computing the stable and reliable door to all things digital in the library, how are libraries managing and supporting public computing to meet the needs and expectations of today's library user?" --Publisher's Website
