Summary

This book, first published in 1992, outlines the issues, indicates major trends, and sets challenges for libraries and publishers concerning new technologies and serials. Libraries in Australia and New Zealand have struggled for years with the problems of distance and cost in a print-oriented publishing industry dominated by countries half way across the globe. This book provides practical advice on the need for Australasian libraries to become actively involved in the possibilities of this new technology in order to maximize the benefits for themselves and their clients. Throughout the book, the contributors emphasize the need for improved communication between authors, publishers, information technology specialists, libraries, and users, and propose a standardization of formats and delivery systems to aid easy cooperation between such diverse groups. The chapters stress the need for user-friendly access to information along with education programs that are tailor-made to meet different access requirements.
