Course Summary

This two-part online event has been adapted from UKSG’s successful and long-running one-day seminar and aims to present a practical introductory overview of all aspects of e-resources management, encompassing e-journals, e-books and bibliographic and full-text databases.

The emphasis is on developing a sound basic understanding of the details of e-resources handling in order to promote efficient and informed working practices.  A wide range of day-to-day issues will be covered, with time devoted to recognising and resolving the problems that can arise at the boundaries between publishers, intermediaries and libraries, and addressing business models such as open access.  In addition, the seminar will provide a forum for a virtual group discussion on the current issues and opportunities offered by e-books.

Delegates will be able to air and exchange views in the discussion session after each presentation. The seminar will be delivered over two mornings, and delegates will be asked to use the time in between sessions to reflect on some of the issues raised.

Who should attend?

Designed particularly for staff who are new to working with e-resources, whether from a publisher, an intermediary or a library, this seminar may also be of interest to those looking to consolidate and update their e-resources knowledge.

We welcome participants from all corners of the globe to join our seminars, however speakers and topics are generally UK focussed, if you have any doubt about the suitability please don’t hesitate to contact us.
