IFLA har udsendt første draft af Key Issues for e-Resource Collection Development: A Guide for Libraries. Vær opmærksom på at guiden er et draft indtil 31. marts. Der kommer sikkert et nyt link.
Introduction (side 3)
This Guide focuses exclusively on electronic resources whether acquired via purchase
or license, free from the web, born digital or multiple format materials (e.g., CD-ROM
combined with a book). Electronic resources present a number of challenges not
encountered with the selection and acquisition of traditional analog materials and it is
advisable for the library to develop clear policies and processes for the selection and
management of such resources. This will provide clarity to staff and ensure that
electronic resources within the library are developed with due consideration of cost,
technical feasibility, licensing, access and preservation requirements, and constraints.
Purpose (side 3)
The purpose of this Guide is to help develop an awareness of the key issues that every
library will need to consider and address in developing an e-portfolio. The Guide is not
intended to be exhaustive, but is written to provide a reasonable and informed
introduction to the wide range of issues presented by electronic resources.
