How Can Libraries Determine the Value in Collecting, Managing, Preserving, and/or Cataloging E-Resources?
King, Douglas
Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship, v21 n2 p131-140 2009
The author recently asked his colleagues, "How can libraries determine the value in collecting, managing, preserving, and/or cataloging e-resources?" hoping to challenge readers to come up with some thoughtful opinions and useful tips. Not surprisingly, he received a handful of substantially different but uniformly provocative and creative responses, including three from Kent State University. Burton Caldicott, reference librarian of the College of Charleston, stresses that libraries cannot determine the value in collecting, managing, preserving, and/or cataloging e-resources. What libraries can do is use their best judgment about what information will be the most important to preserve and catalog.
