Handbook of Research on Inventive Digital Tools for Collection Management and Development in Modern Libraries

Book Description

The quality of library collections depends heavily on the initial assessment requirements. An accurate assessment assists with meeting the goals and missions of the library, but the introduction of digital media and resources is accompanied with new challenges in measuring the effective use of the library’s collection. The Handbook of Research on Inventive Digital Tools for Collection Management and Development in Modern Libraries details how libraries strive to bridge traditional collections with their new digital counterparts. Providing real-world examples and analysis of the modern library, this publication is a timely reference source for professionals and researchers in the fields of library and information science, as well as executives interested in information and organizational development.
