Getting to grips with developing and managing e-book collections: an introduction

 

to be held in the

 

Netskills Training Suite, University of Newcastle

Tuesday 27th October 2009, 9.30 - 16.30

 

 

Course Outline

This 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 eight 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 NetLibrary, 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 the significant collection management and promotional issues which challenge information and library staff. 

 

The course is designed to offer: 

*	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 advantages and disadvantages of the medium
*	an appreciation of the collection management issues associated with bibliographical control, selection, acquisition, access, evaluation, licensing, and archiving
*	a familiarity with the different ways of promoting awareness and use of e-books.

 

In addition to talks by the presenters, the course includes practical exercises. One will allow delegates to explore examples of online e-books in a structured way. Others will comprise activities during which delegates will examine the major collection management, and marketing and promotion issues. Plenary sessions led by the course presenters will be held to enable delegates to  discuss their findings in the light of current research and professional practice.
