The E-Resources Management Handbook

This open access publication has a good, basic introductory look at e-serials and their management. The publication covers a range of associated subjects, such as institutional repository, COUNTER, developing vendor relationships. The currency of material is important in this fast-moving environment and it is encouraging to note that the editors have committed to continually updating the content. The content and principles discussed are widely applicable and would have as much relevance in New Zealand as they would in the UK or USA.
