A guide to Docutek, Inc.'s ERes software : A way to manage electronic reserves, (Ed) James M McCloskey

Jean-Maree Uys


Electronic reserves is a critical academic library service which is still in its infancy stages in South African academic libraries but which is used by most, if not all, academic libraries internationally. If South African academic libraries want to compete globally, it is essential that they move away from the manual system and embrace the newer technologies available which will enable them to provide a better and more efficient reserve system. This book contains nine papers written by professionals who have firsthand experience of the Docutek ERes software package. This book is a practical hands-on guide to the use and performance of the Docutek ERes software package. Although all the authors are from universities in the USA, the book is a useful guide on how to convert from a manual system, what support is needed, and how best to implement the new system and interface it with other software used by the library service.
