This book covers the key current topic of electronic library resources and learning in the digital age. The book 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.

Dr Jane Secker is Learning Technology Librarian at the Centre for Learning Technology, based at the London School of Economics. She is Chair of the Heron User Group and Association of Information Professionals in the Social Sciences (ALISS). She is the Conference Officer for CILIP Information Literacy Group and a founder member of the Librarians' Information Literacy Annual Conference (LILAC).
