Key Issues for e-Resource Collection Development: A Guide for Libraries | IFLA

Key Issues for e-Resource Collection Development: A Guide for Libraries | IFLA | The Future Librarian | Scoop.it

"The purpose of this Guide is to help develop an awareness of the key issues that every library will need to consider and address in developing an e-portfolio. The Guide is not intended to be exhaustive, but is written to provide a reasonable and informed introduction to the wide range of issues presented by electronic resources." 

 

This Guide focuses exclusively on electronic resources whether acquired via purchase or license, free from the web, born digital or multiple format materials (e.g., CD-ROM combined with a book). It is arranged in four broad sections, each focusing on a key aspect or critical sub-aspect of the electronic resource process in libraries: collection development, selection and evaluation, licensing and review/renewals. There is an appendix providing a definition of terms which appears within this document, as well as a list of resources.
