  • Description

E-journals, a new format only a few years ago, are now commonplace in many libraries. Curtis, one of the nation's leading experts in the field, offers innovative ideas for helping library staff optimize their users' online experiences. She begins by addressing the information-seeking behavior of users and their evolving service expectations.

She offers guidelines for selecting, ordering, receiving, delivering, and providing access to electronic journals, along with tips and resources for keeping current. Curtis also discusses using outsourcing for managing electronic journals. There is clear and complete information on benefits and costs, selection rationale, archiving, licensing, copyright, cataloging, and more. Special features include: glossaries, sample collection policies, a guide for standardizing titles for Web lists, tips for creating an electronic journal spreadsheet, and more. This comprehensive guide will help you make the most of your library's E-journal resources.
