Most academic and many public libraries today have an electronic reserves system because it provides quick, controlled and efficient digital access to class materials, reference works and selected resources. In this guide, Jeff Rosedale, along with a group of library experts, seeks to help the reader get up to speed on creating and managing an electronic reserve programme in a library. It features practical information and covers a range of issues including: the basics (in Question and Answer form) of starting up and maintaining electronic reserves; effective staffing; selection criteria for hardware, software, and vendor versus ""home-grown"" decisions; evaluation of your system once it's up and running; copyright in the digital library; the future of electronic reserves.
