Summary

“Advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” --Arthur C. Clarke

This well-researched book makes sense of the new advances in electronic services and resources available to science and technology libraries. It will familiarize you with the latest collection development, reference service, and information service technologies. Inside you’ll find case studies, examples of successful implementations of emerging information technologies, helpful tables and figures, screen shots, and more!

In addition to bringing you up to date on the latest trends in the area, Electronic Resources and Services in Sci-Tech Libraries will provide you with essential background information on these important technologies.

With Electronic Resources and Services in Sci-Tech Libraries, you’ll learn:
  • how the University of Arizona Libraries access remote electronic resources
  • how journal articles containing complex mathematics are published on the Web--including the latest developments in MathML, PDF, OpenMath, and more
  • how the e-resource registry approach can be integrated with existing custom Web-based services
  • how to use user-centered criteria to evaluate electronic journals
  • how to use e-prints (electronic preprints) to break the stranglehold that journal publishers have over science libraries
  • how to get the most from electronic reserves-with tips and techniques for implementing an e-reserves service, negotiating copyright issues, and more
  • how to implement a successful current awareness services program
  • how the next generation of library portals will impact sci-tech libraries
  • and much more!
