E-Publishing and Digital Libraries

Book Description

Digital libraries collect, manage, and preserve electronic expressions of knowledge on any subject and in any type or format. Consequently, the creation of a digital library presupposes the respect of the legal norms which govern the pre-existing materials included in the database. E-Publishing and Digital Libraries: Legal and Organizational Issues provides a comprehensive overview of the organizational and legal issues concerning digital libraries. It includes 24 contributions from world-renowned specialists in digital libraries. This premier reference source is a must-have for researchers and professionals in the field of ICTs and its various disciplines, including library, education, computer science and management, as well as experts in the field of law.
