Review:

"...a handy guide...The value of this guide is its exclusive focus on e-resource collection development and the special considerations associated with it...The Kovacs Guide is a welcome addition to the collection development literature available to librarians." --Collection Management 35(2) April-June 2010

"...especially useful are individual sections citing specific Web sites for e-collection sources in ready reference, business, medicine, biology, engineering, physical and earth sciences and humanities...offers librarians much useful information." --Booklist, February 2010

"Expanded and updated, this edition incorporates new Web 2.0 services and government e-documents. It also covers the integration of the library catalog and library services, has a greater variety and scope of fee-based databases, and has a greater variety of electronic journals and books." --SciTech Book News, December 2009

"â ¦this marvelous book is absolutely foundational for, as the subtitle says, the theory and practice of information literacy instruction (ILI). The authors have deep experience in all facets of ILI, have written and presented widely, and have stayed abreast of research on all aspects of the topic since the first landmark edition of this title (2001)...Very highly recommended to all academic and public libraries." --Catholic Library World, September 2010

"The Kovacs Guide to Electronic Library Collection Development may become the most dog-eared reference work on my desk...This impressive work serves as an excellent resource for new librarians, but also a useful guide for those of us in the trenches...an excellent overview of not only resources, but of current library practices." --Journal of the Medical Library Association, January 2011

"Expanded and updated, this edition incorporates new Web 2.0 services and government e-documents. It also covers the integration of the library catalog and library services, has a greater variety and scope of fee-based databases, and has a greater variety of electronic journals and books." --SciTech Book News, December 2009

From Booklist:

First published in 2004, this second edition provides updated and enhanced information on “how to build, expand, improve, and maintain an e-library collection.” Chapters cover general collection guidelines and licensing basics; especially useful are individual sections citing specific Web sites for e-collection sources in ready reference, business, medicine, biology, engineering, physical and earth sciences, and the social sciences and humanities. Kovacs, who co-compiled a few editions of the invaluable print Directory of Electronic Journals, Newsletters, and Academic Discussion Lists, among other works, is a very diligent researcher, and her latest title again offers librarians much useful information. The price may deter financially strapped libraries from purchasing this worthwhile title. --Donald Altschiller
