Managing e-books in libraries


Published on

This presentation provides a brief history of the rise of the e-book, focusing on the challenges facing school libraries in their management of e-books. The Schools Catalogue Information Service (SCIS) as a key service provider and partner with Australian and New Zealand school libraries is committed to helping schools deal with collection management issues. One of the questions we all face at the moment is how the principles and standards that have served well for physical resources can be applied to digital resources. The presentation also looks briefly at how SCIS is cataloguing e-books.
