  • Description

Changes in the distribution of new academic and scientific knowledge have altered scholarly publishing and the very nature of what college, university, and other research libraries collect. The first two parts of this collection present an overview of current trends; the library's perspective of publishing; and the challenges that publishers have encountered in recent years. Part Three, Access and Preservation Initiatives, explores usability of electronic publications; the effect of open access on information dissemination; and the promise of self-archiving publications. Part Four, Models and Economics, examines the transformative potential of e-books; the economic of publishing and its relationship to scholarly communication; and the credibility, consistency and compatibility of usage statistics.
