UKSG Augments The E-Resources Management Handbook

The UK Serials Group (UKSG) has recently published new chapters of The E-Resources Management Handbook, its open access guide to the issues and challenges facing those in the information community. The UKSG, comprising 500 member organizations, exists to encourage the exchange of ideas on printed and electronic serials and the process of scholarly communication.

Two of the new chapters follow the book’s original formula by providing analyses of specific areas of e-resource management. Louise Cole, senior information advisor (collections) at Kingston University gives up-to-date guidance for U.K. librarians relating to copyright in the digital age. Jo Cross, market research manager at Taylor & Francis, provides an introduction to impact factors that explains how the factors are calculated and the variables that need to be considered when evaluating them.

An additional five new chapters take the form of interviews with thought leaders from the information community: 

  • Stephen Abram, vice president, SirsiDynix 
  • Martin Marlow, vice president, Publisher Business Development & Marketing, Ingram Digital 
  • Peter McCracken, director of research, Serials Solutions 
  • Jim Mouw, assistant director, Technical & Electronic Services, University of Chicago 
  • Alison Mudditt, executive vice president, Higher Education Group, SAGE

The interviews are designed to summarize the current state of scholarly communications while providing a broad range of insights from professionals with differing perspectives and comprehensive experience into what the future may hold. Planned updates for 2009 include chapters on peer review, repositories, elearning, and the semantic web. Learn more or sign up for new chapter alerts at
