Electronic Resources

"Bibliographic description of electronic resources and user needs" by Maria Witt appears in Online Information Review (2003) v. 27, no. 6, pp. 383-395.
discusses various examples of selection, bibliographic description of electronic resources, and how the mediation provided by librarians can help users with their choices during searching. Users are confronted with more information than ever before, and their expectations are becoming increasingly diverse. This article presents several observations gathered from public libraries and considers the conditions of access and description to electronic resources in various French libraries. Finally added value in authority records is discussed, with particular reference to URLs.
