Impact of Electronic Resources on Collection Development, the Roles of Librarians, and Library Consortia.
Thornton, Glenda A.
Library Trends, v48 n4 p842-56 Spr 2000

This rapid transformation is illustrated by a discussion of OhioLINK and its positive and negative effects on one member library. (Contains 21 references.) (Author/AEF)
