While the digital revolution has touched every aspect of law librarianship, perhaps nowhere has the effect been more profound than in the area of collection development. Many of the materials law libraries traditionally collected in print form are now available in electronic format. Digital technology has affected the way we select, order, and process legal materials. The World Wide Web has created an explosion of both commercial and private online publishing. The cost of electronic publishing has caused many traditional law book publishers to sell their companies rather than invest in the needed technologies to compete in the 21st century. Small publishers and book jobbers have been forced to reinvent themselves. The amount of legal information available and its costs continue to soar. Law Library Collection Development in the Digital Age deals with these and other issues related to law library collection development. Chapters range from the theoretical to the practical. Inspired by Penny Hazleton’s seminal paper “How Much of Your Print Collection is Really on Lexis or Westlaw?” the editors and chapter authors of Law Library Collection Development in the Digital Age endeavor to expand on professor Hazleton’s work, with examinations of: the role of law libraries in strategic planning for distance learning Web mirror sites trust vs. antitrust issues access vs. ownership issues how law libraries deal with electronic court records, dockets, and filings the growth of e-journals as they relate to legal publishing how the Hein Greenslips and Blackwell North America’s Bookservice cover legal materials past, present, and future roles of specialized book jobbers and more! Anyone interested in law librarianship or the information industry will find this book informative and useful. Make it a part of your professional collection today.

Librarians and other library professionals will find this informative book chock full of thought-provoking papers that will help you find new solutions to the collection development problems your library may experience while facing this new digital age. Collection Development in a Digital Environment is a result of papers presented at the 1998 University of Oklahoma Libraries Conference. You will discover ways to help your library take the lead in advancing the academic agenda through technology while at the same time leaning how technology requires change in the way libraries themselves operate. 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.

Librarianship is both an art and a science. Librarians study the science of information and how to work with clients to help them find solutions to their information needs. They also learn quickly that there is an art to working with people, to finding the answers to tough questions using the resources available and knowing which information resources to use to find the information being sought in short order. But, what technical skills do librarians need to be successful in the future? How can library managers best develop their staffs for success? Developing Librarian Competencies for the Digital Age explores questions such as: What is the composition of a modern library collection? Will that collection look different in the future? What are the information sources and how do we manage those? What are the technical skills needed for a 21st century librarian? How will reference services change and adapt to embrace new ways to interact with library patrons or clients? What kinds of library skills are needed for the librarian of today to grow and thrive, now and into the future? How will service models change to existing clients and how will the model change going into the future of librarianship? What kinds of budgeting challenges are there for libraries and the administrators who oversee these libraries? What do the library professional organizations see as the core skills needed for new graduates and those practicing in the profession going into the future? In answering those questions, the book identifies specific digital skills needed for success, ways of developing those skills, and ways of assessing them.

This book, first published in 2002, 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 favour 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, it 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.

Digital Disruption and Electronic Resource Management in Libraries identifies issues in the management of e-resources. The paradigm shift from Electronic Resources to Electronic Resource Management (ERM) has meant significant change for libraries and their users. One of the most important functions of a library is to provide information in electronic format. Libraries provide access to a wide variety of resources. A major challenge for libraries and librarians is therefore the management of this diversity of e-resources. ERM has emerged in this context. This book gives theoretical and practical information to assist librarians with ERM. It discusses broad trends and specific topics in the current landscape. It is devoted to theory, history, lifecycle, ERM systems, and the management of e-resources. Presents current theory and practice of Electronic Resource Management (ERM) Offers comprehensive coverage of ERM, including lifecycle, systems, standards Includes case studies for ERM Provides an international perspective on this critical topic
