eContent Quarterly
an electronic-only periodical
One Year Subscription (4 issues): $150.00 (ALA Members: $135.00)

A new digital journal from ALA TechSource, eContent Quarterly offers coverage of everything from e-book and e-journal platforms, e-reference sources, and databases to multimedia, digital solutions, discovery services, and other types of e-content designed for use in libraries and educational institutions. It is written by and for information professionals in the business of producing, selling, buying, and managing e-content—including librarians, publishers, aggregators, distributors, and other library vendors. Editors Sue Polanka and Mirela Roncevic harness their deep knowledge of the e-content landscape and vast library and editorial experience to cover the topic from every angle and in greater depth than is offered in other LIS publications. Examining the successes and failures of business models, delivery methods, and usability of digital content, contributors from a wide range of contexts help shed light on cutting-edge issues and best practices.
About the Editors

Sue Polanka created No Shelf Required®, an award-winning blog about the issues surrounding e-books for librarians and publishers, which led to the best-selling books No Shelf Required and No Shelf Required 2.  She is the head of reference and instruction at the Wright State University Libraries in Dayton, Ohio, president of the Academic Library Association of Ohio and a member of the ALA Council.  Her column, E-Book Buzz, appears in ONLINE Searcher magazine. 

Mirela Roncevic, an independent writer, editor and content developer, has been at the forefront of the e-book revolution since its infancy. She managed Library Journal's first e-book reviews column in 1999 and is a consultant for e-content producers, advising them on positioning their products in libraries while working closely with librarians. Editor of The Library Journal Guide to E-Reference Resources, she is also author of “E-book Platforms for Libraries,” an issue of ALA TechSource’s Library Technology Reports.
