Archiving is not a new concept to the librarians as they have been doing this since the libraries started acquiring printed material. Before the advent of electronic journals, research libraries subscribed to printed journals, research libraries subscribed to printed journals, provided access to, and preserved these bibliographic resources in continual support of the research, teaching, and learning needs of their constituent communities. The introduction of electronic journals has transformed scholarly communication in extraordinary ways - making it possible to disseminate research results more quickly, to provide hyperlinked access to cited publications, and to amplify text with images, audio and video files, datasets and software - but it has also created a dilemma for libraries which now licence to access rather than own the journals to which they subscribe. The present book explores the significances and challenges of e-journal archiving in library information systems. Besides teachers and students of library science, librarians and managers of information centers will greatly benefit from the contents of this work.
