About the Event

Course summary

Chairs: Diana Massam, Jisc and Fiona Ainsworth, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew

This one-day seminar 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 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.


Why you 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.

“I thought that the course was very comprehensive, and was a great introduction. I wish I had attended about two years ago, when I first took on this role, as it would have been even more helpful for me then, but at least it gave me confidence that I know most of what I need to know, but also raised a few questions that I want to investigate further."

“Very informative and you could see the clear links between the sectors and start to understand where the joined-up ways of working occur."

“It was stimulating and refreshing to meet individuals from different sectors and institutions."
