Staff Tools & Resources

If libraries are going have eBooks and other eStuff, library staff will have to manage them.
The documents on this page are resources library staff can use to make that job easier.
Some point to sources of eBooks.  Some assist with planning and cost management.
(See the Cheat Sheets page on this site for more useful tools.)
If you have tools of your own--or suggestions for some--send me email.
