Book Description

This book, first published in 1996, provides readers with practical ideas on managing the challenges of the electronic information environment. The proceedings of the tenth anniversary conference of the North American Serials Interest Group (NASIG), the book covers how electronic publishing impacts the dissemination of knowledge in general and specific related issues. Contributors include librarians, publishers, vendors, and editors of electronic journals. They offer readers diverse perspectives about: copyright law in the digital world; the future of information dissemination; challenges of innovative approaches to providing information in electronic format standards for identifying and citing electronic resources; bibliographic control of Internet resources; and organization of service delivery to meet the challenges of evolving technology.
