No Shelf Required 2: Use and Management of Electronic Books

From the publisher’s Web site:

With their explosive sales and widespread availability, the past few years have definitively proven that e-books are here to stay. In this sequel to her best-selling book of the same title, expert Polanka dives even deeper into the world of digital distribution. Contributors from across the breadth of the e-book world offer their perspectives on what’s happening now and what to expect in the coming months and years. Included in this invaluable resource are

  • Guidelines for performing traditional library processes such as cataloging, weeding, archiving, and managing e-book accessibility for patrons with special needs
  • Explorations of topics such as the e-book digital divide and open-access publishing
  • Case studies from an array of academic, public, and school libraries, offering firsthand accounts of what works, what doesn’t, and why
  • Discussions of the emerging model of the electronic-only library and the rich possibilities of enhanced e-books

All librarians will want to familiarize themselves with the wealth of advice in this volume on best practices for use and management of e-books.
