Description - Electronic Resources in the Virtual Learning Environment by Jane Secker

This work covers the key current topic of electronic library resources and learning in the digital age. It begins by outlining the changing "information environment" in which librarians now work. It then goes on to discuss: the development of e-learning as a concept and the impact this is having on the further and higher education sector; the changing role of the librarian in supporting online learning; the technical problems associated with connecting up library systems; the copyright and licensing of electronic resources in a digital environment; and, finally the book offers tips for librarians when becoming involved in such initiatives. The book: examines the wealth of electronic library resources; examines the development of e-learning/online learning; considers the role of the librarian in supporting e-learning/online learning; and provides practical examples for librarians.
