Room 204
Conference Track

1. Managing e-Resources & Licensing


time management, split job roles

Learning Objectives

Following this session, participants will be able to formulate strategies to balance divergent job roles and manage electronic resources with limited time and resources.


How do you balance responsibilities in a job with multiple roles? This panel session will detail the challenges faced by librarians with split responsibilities in e-Resources and Research & Instruction, and the approaches they take to maximize their efforts in both departments. Emphasis will be given to strategies which address time and resource constraints in the management of electronic resources.
