Collection Development in a Digital Environment explores ethical and technological dilemmas of collection development and gives several suggestions on how your library can successfully deal with these challenges and provide patrons with the information they need. This guide covers many valuable ways that your library can be better prepared for developing a “user friendly” collection of materials in this new digital age. You will discover how methods to shift your library from buying materials for collections for faculty or students that may need them sporadically to a system of responsiveness and customization where “just in time” and “just for you” are the standards of information access, making you and your library both time-effective and cost-effective. Collection Development in a Digital Environment brings to light many ways in which libraries can improve collection development methods, such as: using the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) initiatives to improve global access to information, such as the Global Resources Program, which features a seamless web of interconnected, coordinated, and interdependent research collections that are electronically accessible to users examining discussions on scenario-driven planning and the benefits of having your patrons let you know what they are interested in instead of guessing what materials they may be interested in analyzing the influence of the World Wide Web on the role of libraries to discover how you can use these ideas to expand the collection of materials in your library gaining insight into how the concept of disintermediation in the publishing process will help libraries use the electronic environment to eliminate intermediate sources and collect materials directly from the publisher, thus saving time and money From the insightful chapters in Collection Development in a Digital Environment, you will find new and successful ways to use the new digital environment to enhance collection development in your library. This unique book will help your library be more digitally accessible while still being user-friendly to your clientele.

Examine the effects electronic resources have on your library! Electronic Resources and Collection Development examines how the transition to electronic resources in academic libraries has impacted traditional collection development policies and practices. Nine acclaimed librarians present their perspectives on the growing trend toward digital materials acquisition that is tipping the scales in favor of “access” in the “ownership vs. access” debate. The book provides insights on the use of electronic resources in major research libraries from data collection by JSTOR, a leading provider of digital resources to academic libraries. A rich and diverse collection of theory, opinion, and observation, Electronic Resources and Collection Development offers a unique understanding of how libraries are meeting the challenge of reshaping their collection development programs with electronic resources—a process that is quickly gaining momentum. Contributors are divided in their beliefs on whether a balance is still possible between print materials and electronic resources in academic libraries. Among the topics they discuss: the growing demand for e-books the increase in the use of distance education digitalizing special collections building localized collections use patterns of electronic journals and much more! Electronic Resources and Collection Development is an essential resource for library deans, directors, and collection development librarians as they assess the levels of change in their libraries.

This book provides strategic insights drawn from librarians who are meeting the challenge of digital scholarship, utilizing the latest technologies and creating new knowledge in partnership with researchers, scholars, colleagues and students. The impact of digital on libraries has extended far beyond its transformation of content, to the development of services, the extension and enhancement of access to research and to teaching and learning systems. As a result,the fluidity of the digital environment can often be at odds with the more systematic approaches to development traditionally taken by academic libraries, which has also led to a new generation of roles and shifting responsibilities with staff training and development often playing ‘catch-up’. One of the key challenges to emerge is how best to demonstrate expertise in digital scholarship which draws on the specialist technical knowledge of the profession and maintains and grows its relevance for staff, students and researchers. This edited collection spans a wide range of contrasting perspectives, contexts, insights and case studies, which explore the relationships between digital scholarship, contemporary academic libraries and professional practice. The book demonstrates that there are opportunities to be bold, remodel, trial new approaches and reposition the library as a key partner in the process of digital scholarship. Content covered includes: • the impact of digital scholarship on organizational strategies • an insight into new services and roles, partnerships and collaborations • case studies exploring new technologies to support research and development • new approaches to service delivery • re-visioning of space, physical and virtual.
