A New Service from Libraries: Electronic Publishing
MetadataShow full item record
Libraries are continuously improving traditional services but now they are also responding to stringent economic times by producing and distributing information electronically. Publishing electronic journals, distributing pre-publication abstracts, digitizing images, incorporating hyperlinks between and within documents and databases, and providing online access to local news are some of the innovative services academic libraries have begun to provide. This paper describes how one library addressed the challenges and took advantage of opportunities and readily available new technologies to meet the information needs of their future remote clients as well as their current local patrons.
