Getting to grips with developing and managing e-book collections: an
introduction - Chris Armstrong & Ray Lonsdale

Venue: Learning Centre, University of Birmingham, Edgbaston, Birmingham,
B15 2TT
Date: Wednesday, 16 May, 2012 - 09:30 - 16:30

Course Outline: 

This introductory course opens the door to a new electronic format and
is designed to support librarians who are beginning to set up e-book
collections. In the last ten years, there has been an unprecedented
growth in the publishing of e-books with an increasing array of
different types available for all sectors. The programme will give you
the opportunity to explore different e-books including a range of
commercially-published and free reference works, monographs, textbooks,
and fiction. Examples will include individual titles and also
collections of e-books, such as those offered by Questia, Credo,
MyiLibrary and Oxford University Press. The course will also facilitate
consideration of the new opportunities e-books offer for librarians and
users in academic, public and special library and information services,
and will explore some of the significant collection management and
promotional issues which challenge information and library staff. 

 The course is designed to offer delegates from all sectors:

    * an understanding of the nature of e-books
    * a familiarity with range of commercially-produced e-books from
publishers and aggregators
    * a familiarity with range of free e-books
    * an appreciation of the collection management issues associated
with bibliographical control, selection, acquisition, business models,
licensing and archiving, as well as facilitating access to e-books
    * a familiarity with the different ways of promoting awareness and
use of e-books.
