Book Review: Techniques for Electronic Resource Management: TERMS and the Transition to Open

Erin Wentz

Abstract


Electronic resources (e-resources) have become an integral part of libraries’ resources in many parts of the world and enable libraries to meet users’ needs whenever and wherever they are located. Open access (OA) resources similarly decrease financial and geographic barriers to using content. Libraries incorporate open resources into their collections to enhance or replace their subscribed content. As pressure mounts for authors and publishers to make content open, many libraries also support the creation and provision of OA materials. During unexpected disruptions, such as the 2020 coronavirus pandemic, these subscription-based and OA resources enable libraries to continue to meet their users’ needs as they cancel events, close physical locations, and support efforts to move courses and workplaces entirely online. Techniques for Electronic Resource Management: TERMS and the Transition to Open provides a thorough and sophisticated overview of the work that goes into supporting these types of resources.
