More Description


Library collection development has changed dramatically in the past decade. The widespread use of new technology and the publication of information on and through the Internet and the World Wide Web means that librarians must begin to develop Web-based information collections. Here is a unique guide which will be invaluable for librarians building electronic libraries. Each chapter addresses collecting, evaluating, and selecting Web-based information resources in selected subject areas: business, employment, social science, health, medicine, bioscience, law, physical science, technology, education, current awareness, reader's advisory, and Web-based resources for print and other collection activities. Each chapter offers guidelines for writing an electronic library collection development plan for the subject area, reliable sources of reviews for Web-based resources, case studies of actual e-library collection development projects, and a suggested core collection. The author's companion Web site offers ready-made, annotated, constantly maintained links to sites in the core collections. Password registration information is included with the book.
