About this title

Synopsis:

Learn how other libraries have enhanced their services with an effective electronic reserves system

As the number of libraries offering electronic reserves grows larger and larger, so has the need for an e-reserves option that’s efficient, cost-effective, and easy-to-use. A Guide to Docutek Inc.’s ERes Software: A Way to Manage Electronic Reserves provides first-hand insights and information on how several academic libraries selected and implemented one of the leading e-reserves systems, with an installed base of more than 400 libraries worldwide. ERes users in a variety of libraries discuss how the system has evolved, what technology infrastructure you’ll need to run it, how it fits in with other library and campus courseware systems, how to convert from print to electronic reserves, and what you’ll need to know about copyright management in the e-reserves environment.

A Guide to Docutek Inc.’s ERes Software is an essential resource for librarians who need to make informed decisions about the how and why of choosing an electronic reserve system. This hands-on book is the result of the combined work of several longtime ERes users, many of whom introduced the system to their libraries whether they were public, medical, academic, law, or corporate institutions. Their efforts will help you sort through the ins and outs of providing your patrons with round-the-clock online access to reserve material as you streamline procedures for creating and managing reserve items and courses, improve copyright management, and develop more efficiently compiled usage statistics. The book will guide you through practical solutions to potential problems you could face with reserve indexing, database linking, bandwidth issues, and workflow.

A Guide to Docutek Inc.’s ERes Software examines:

  • the birth pangs experienced when implementing ERes
  • transferring from an ILS electronic course reserve module to ERes
  • fair use issues of electronic reserve documents
  • challenges of revising copyright policy
  • technical difficulties embedded in the programming of ERes
  • hardware and network issues involved in setting up ERes on campus
  • complimentary relationship among ERes , library databases, and courseware
  • and includes a history of Docutek including an interview with company founder Dr. Phillip Kesten
A Guide to Docutek Inc.’s ERes Software: A Way to Manage Electronic Reserves is invaluable for librarians, library administrators, and circulation and reserves support staff considering a conversion to one of the leading commercial electronic reserve systems.
