20 “Accessible information helps to dissolve the mystery surrounding the management of e- resources that exists in many libraries. The work of e-resources management must be seen as integral and mainstream rather than unusual. Improving communications about e-resources management can assist libraries and their staff members in making that transition.” Feather, Celeste (2007). “Electronic Resources Communications Management: A Strategy for Success.” Library Resources & Technical Services 51, no. 3.
