I am the book reviews editor for the Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship.  We routinely review books related to e-resources and libraries  -- using databases, guides to e-resources for librarians, and other books of interest to librarians. We are interested in gaining some new reviewers for our incoming books. As an incentive you get to keep the book you review. If you have an interest in participating please contact me.

This journal aims to inform librarians and other information professionals about current research, evolving work-related processes and procedures, and the latest news on topics related to electronic resources and the digital environment?s impact on collecting, acquiring and making accessible library materials.

Library professionals today require an integrated approach to understanding and managing electronic resources in libraries. They need a place to find scholarly, peer-reviewed literature, opinion pieces, latest news and e-resources related updates. Since topics related to electronic resources span many areas of the profession, there is a proliferation of articles and conferences with electronic resources topics ? often too many and too scattered for any one individual to read or attend. This journal will highlight pivotal, interesting and thought-provoking articles and conference presentations to keep professionals and staff of all levels on top of the latest ideas and changes in the field. The journal will also have relevant book reviews to enable reader to target their professional readings.

The Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship is intended for library administrators, librarians, and other information professionals who work with managing electronic resources in libraries. It is also intended to bridge the gap between theory and practice for LIS educators and students, and is a starting point for information professionals from various backgrounds concerned with issues surrounding the changes in collections, acquisitions and services in libraries in the digital age.
