E-books in Libraries: a practical guide

E-books in Libraries: a practical guideE-books in Libraries: a practical guide - Kate Price and Virginia Havergal, editors - Facet Publishing. "The book is divided into five parts:

• The production and distribution of e-books
• Planning and developing an e-book collection
• Delivering e-books to library readers
• Engaging readers with e-books
• The future of e-books.

This book is a ready reference source for any library and information professional with an interest in e-books and their development. It is essential background reading for library managers wishing to develop an e-book collection from scratch or for those responsible for maintaining an existing e-book collection. It will also have plenty to interest publishers, who need to be aware of the issues faced by libraries managing e-book collections, and will be of great value to students of librarianship and information studies, and those on publishing related courses"
