– Holly Yu, California State University, Los Angeles, USA

The material is organized into five sections covering the history of electronic resources.

– Book News Inc. (June 2008)

The book offers a good, safe, well-structured, well-edited and workmanlike summary of a complex set of issues. No one reading it is likely to come away confused or more frustrated than most of us who deal with the world of electronic resources.

– Library Hi Tech, Vol. 27 No. 1 (2009)

It will be useful for library and information science students, teachers, practitioners and researchers. Those working in the fields of database design, data mining and warehousing, internet and web technologies will find in it many rewarding readings.

– Dr. KP Singh, University of Delhi

The unique contribution of this book is that it focuses on the potential of digital storytelling in the niche area of academic libraries and in higher education to foster learning and community. This book is a useful resource and is recommended for both the library specialist and the general reader.
