Presented by CLA Access, Collections, and Technical Services Section


As more resources become available electronically, libraries face an

ever increasing challenge of managing, providing access, and collecting

e-metrics of electronic resources. In order to streamline this activity,

libraries are revisiting and refreshing their organizational structures

to properly staff and manage e-resources. Some have adopted a

centralized model and others are continuing to follow a distributed

model where the work is incorporated throughout the library. This

program will cover the four major areas of ERMS:

Electronic Resources Management Systems: What ERM systems are available?

How to assess what your library needs, getting started with ERMS,

evaluating ERMS.

Organizational Integration: Who is involved in managing e-resources

throughout the library? What are the license issues; what workflow

designs have been developed by libraries?

E-Metrics: Extracting and analyzing electronic resource data - best


Future trends: Where ERMS are going

Objectives of the Pre-Conference Institute:

*Understand the current issues and trends in the management of


resources, including licensing, internal workflow models, and


Also examine the historical context that led to ERMs and current


*Be able to identify current and prospective ERM systems, understand

*Understand real-world implementation of ERM systems and the work

required on the part of purchasing libraries.

Serials, collection development, acquisitions, electronic resources and

acquisitions librarians, or anyone else charged with managing electronic

products and subscriptions will be interested in this program.
